The New Orleans Art Center:

The New Orleans Art Center shows local artist and is located right in the city's "Saint Claude Arts District." Located in the heart of the ninth ward and on the edge of Bywater. This district is quickly becoming a new center for Art and Dining in New Orleans. 



Collecting at its best is very far from mere acquisitiveness; it may become one of the most humanistic of occupations, seeking to illustrate by the assembling of significant reliques, the march of the human spirit in its quest for beauty...
(Arthur Davison Ficke)
