Jessica Strahan artwork

The Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans has awarded the 2019 recipients of the Louisiana Contemporary prizes, which honor four artists from the state each year. The lead award, the Helis Foundation Art Prize, comes with $5,000 and was given to Jessica Strahan for her paintings that depict the African Diaspora through the context of her life in New Orleans. The other three artists awarded were photographer Sarrah Danziger, printmaker Thomas Deaton, and mixed-media sculptor Rachel David, all of whom were chosen by the guest juror, the Whitney Museum’s director of curatorial initiatives, David Breslin.
