Hurry – it ends June 8th! I headed to NOMA with the rugmonsters today to see the George Rodrigue exhibit. The cost was $4 for me (Louisiana resident price) & the kids were free. We spent $1 each for the narrated walking tour headset! SOOOOOOO worth it! We scooted through in about 45 minutes. You walk around and “press buttons” (kids love that) that correlate to the number on the wall. Each stop gives you a brief narration, often mixed with music and local stories and history, by George Rodrigue himself. The kids listened to almost ALL of them. At the end, they have his faux studio set up – that was really neat. PLEASE don’t let this exhibit pass without seeing it. The parking is quick & free and you can be out of there in an hour!
New Orlean’s Museum of Art hours are Wednesday, 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Thursday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
I had to slip in a picture of Chulo the Stupor Dog. He really does look like the Blue Dog!!
