NOLA local: Artists to know

An art crawl is what we’d call this adventure anywhere else on the planet. But in New Orleans, as you may know, things are different. There, this local art trail might be called a Bayou No Compass (meaning you are slipping off radar for a bit). Okay by them. That’s how New Orleans operates. Or maybe you’d call this a Chute- the- chute, art-style. Semantics aside, the aim is the same. This is a beginner’s guide to some of Fat City’s more unique artists. Some have brick and mortar locales you can visit, some art will find you, others are artists whose work you may want to know. They are all distinct, they traffic in very different mediums. Rachael di Rosario traffics in art boxes. Pottspurls, in fiber art, yet they share a common bond. They get their inspiration from a city that is all soul.
