The New Orleans Jazz Festival poster is eagerly anticipated each year, having become a cherished part of the annual Jazz Fest experience and the most collected poster in the world. From its inception in 1970, the festival has been promoted with colorful limited edition posters. Designed by notable Louisiana artists, among them George Rodrigue, John T. Scott, and James Michalopoulos, this year’s poster artist, many of them feature portraits of Jazz luminaries such as Louis Armstrong, Pete Fountain and Ellis Marsalis. The dozen selections on view in this small exhibit are on loan from the Louisiana State Museum Collection.
The rhythmic spirit of jazz is evoked in the vibrant paintings, layered prints and kinetic sculptures of one of the country's most highly acclaimed contemporary artists, John T. Scott (1940-2007). Shaped in part by African, Caribbean, and New Orleans musical traditions, Scott’s “optical jazz” reveals an improvisatory “make-do” aesthetic.
Selections from the LSU Museum of Art's permanent collection are always on display. The 5000+ work collection includes seventeenth-twentieth century American and British portraiture, landscape painting, prints and decorative arts, pre-Civil War silver, Chinese Jade, and Newcomb pottery.
Gabriel Dawe's works have evolved into large-scale, site specific installations involving seemingly simple materials, such as sewing thread. The result is a series of impermanent sculptural installations of captivating cascades of color. His mesmerizing installations differ with every changing perspective, from the intricacies of a work when viewed from close-up to the colorful threads that are more apparent from a distance. Both the complex structure and point of view offered by the large-scale installations give Dawe's artworks a distinct perspective that is unique and thought-provoking.
36 black-and-white masterworks from the collection of A Gallery for Fine Photography, located in New Orleans.
