Gems In New Orleans

When one thinks of New Orleans, things like the French Quarter, Cajun Food, Jazz and Mardi Gras typically come to mind.

On a recent visit, I had some down time and decided to check out the New Orleans Museum of Art, NOMA.

To my surprise and delight, NOMA is filled with wonderful little gems including works by artists as renowned as Picasso, Renoir, Chagall and Warhol.

However, my favorite works were by Frank Paulin, an American Photographer, who captured a series of powerful images featuring African-Americans in New Orleans, circa 1952.
