Art Openings and Shows in NOLAEach week, NoDef brings you a comprehensive directory of visual arts
in the Crescent City from Julia to St. Claude
Feb. 19-26, 2013
Colorful Mardi Gras floats may not be rolling down the streets anymore, but there’s still much to see in the city. Aside from ongoing exhibits like Deborah Luster’s haunting photographs or a pair of fashionable brothers taking over Longue Vue, new exhibitions are popping up all around town. Abstract landscapes take over the Tulane art gallery, the Historic New Orleans Collection gets in touch with its Louisiana roots, and conceptualism comes to NOMA. Now that Super Bowl and Mardi Gras festivities have ended, Ogden After Hours and Friday Nights at NOMA return with more music, shows and cocktails. See what else is new in the budding New Orleans art scene below:

Opens January 17, on view through April 7.
