Artwork at Jackson Square

Colorful and Local Artist

    New Orleans artists have been selling their artwork at Jackson Square since the 1920's.  Each day of the week you can find them along the walkways of Jackson Square and in front of Saint Louis Catherral.  Wrought iron fences of Jackson Square, you can find artists who meet each day.

    There, you can have your portrait or caricature done and view the artists at work.  Artists also paint and hang their artwork for display along the wrought iron fences.  You can find a large selection of artwork to choose from including that of New Orleans historical landmarks.  

   There are also various street performers who perform there daily.  Musicians, mimes, tap dancers, jugglers, tarot card readers, and a brass band arrive there daily to entertain the crowds in Front of Jackson Square.

Eric, I think I had someone do a palm reading in this square if I remember correctly.

What colorful art!  And is that your shirt reflected in the first photo with the white house art on the right of the display?  I have visting New Orleans as part of my bucket list.

Hello Eric... I've always been a fan of "street" artists and artwork. Always enjoyed it when I lived in Paris. Whenever I'm in St Petersburg in Russia visiting family I always take a walk to the square where artists display their work.

The vivid colors of the artwork are phenomenal, Eric.  What a wonderful joy it must have been to witness up close and personal.
