D-Block

On the West Bank in New Orleans are the projects Degaulle Manor. Better known as D-Block. One of the most notorious of New Orleans. The artwork here is some of the best I have ever seen. It was actually a city backed project called ExhibitBe. On this trip, I only had time to tour three of the twelve or so buildings & only made it to the second floor of only one. A second visit is in a gallery below this one. Here are a couple of links giving the violent history & one on th art project.
