Very Local New Orleans: The Best Spots in the City to Celebrate International Sculpture Day
The Poydras Corridor Sculpture Exhibition
Funded and presented by The Helis Foundation since 2013, The Poydras Corridor Sculpture Exhibition is a series of public art that lines Poydras Street from Convention Center Boulevard in the CBD, all the way toward Galvez Street in Mid City.
The collection is an initiative of Sculpture for New Orleans, founded by sculptor, Michael Manjarris, after Hurricane Katrina, with the mission of lifting the spirits of the people of New Orleans through public art, as well as providing local and regional artists the opportunity to present their work in a public venue.
Along with Sculpture for New Orleans and The Helis Foundation, the Ogden Museum of Southern Art and the city’s Department of Parks and Parkways have collaborated to bring one of the South’s leading rotating sculpture exhibitions to NOLA!
Now it’s back in our city, to be proudly displayed on the corner of Poydras Street and Loyola Avenue!
