New Orleans - X Marks the Spot @slashfood by Mark Ellwood

New Orleans is America's original foodie mecca. In the 1700s, there was already a 400 vendor farmers' market in the center of town (on the site of the current French Market).

"Our cuisine is 25% French, 25% Spanish and 50% African – the French and Spanish influenced the food, but it was the Africans who largely cooked it," explains Tom Fitzmorris, author of "Hungry Town: A Culinary History of New Orleans", "It's a creole cuisine in every sense of the word" ...

New Orleans street performer debuts at Jazz Fest | The Associated Press

In a Friday, April 2, 2010 photo, New Orleans street musician Elliott Small, " Grandpa Elliott " talks with a tourist, Nick Harvey, 12 years old, from Denver, Colorado on the corner of Royal and Toulouse Streets in the French Quarter of New Orleans. Harvey handed a tip and compliment to Small. He will be a featured singer at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival that kicks off Friday. (AP Photo/Judi Bottoni)

For most of his 65 years, street singer Elliott Small was famous only on a New Orleans corner — until an innovative 2008 Internet video went viral, bringing the white-bearded, overall clad musician with the turned up hat brim before a global audience in a worldwide collaboration performance of Ben E. King's classic, "Stand By Me."

We'd be willing to wager that at some point in the 10 episodes that make up this new show’s debut season, a New Orleans boogie woogie or bounce cut will accompany a murder, some hot sex or a new birth -- and not just the big metaphorical creation-story that opens up the series.

Beyond the Blues: Reflections of African America | NOMA.org

April 10 - July 11

Beyond the Blues:

Reflections of African America in the Fine Arts Collection of the Amistad Research Center
(organized by NOMA and the Amistad Research Center) (EWF Galleries)

The Amistad Research Center, located on the Tulane University campus, is the nation's largest independent archive specializing in the history of African Americans and other minority ethnic groups. A lesser known aspect of the Center is its extraordinary collection of fine art dating from the nineteenth century to the present day.

Beyond the Blues: Reflections of African America in the Fine Arts Collection of the Amistad Research Center, presented by the New Orleans Museum of Art and the Amistad Research Center, marks a long overdue public access to these remarkable works of art. The exhibition will feature nearly 150 works including paintings, prints, and sculpture, as well as archival materials such as letters and sketchbooks, providing a fascinating glimpse of the artistic process. Like the Collection itself, the exhibition is a map that charts change in American visual arts while highlighting African American connections passed, like a baton, over the course of a century from one generation to the next.

The New Orleans Museum of Art is located in City Park, convenient to the City Park/Metairie Road exit of 1-10. The Museum may be reached by street car from the Carrollton line extending from the Canal Street line, or by public bus via the Carrollton Avenue or Esplanade Avenue lines of the RTA.

New Orleans Museum of Art
One Collins C. Diboll Circle
City Park
New Orleans, Louisiana 70124
