Gallery of Contemporary Art
Working with the neighborhood to build an inclusive venue for art.
The New Orleans Art Center is located in the St. Claude Arts District of the Bywater neighborhood of New Orleans, Louisiana. The gallery features 6000 square feet of open space and we show a unique mixture of contemporary talent with an appreciation for many forms of art.
