Reader

There are few bare surfaces in the abandoned naval base in Bywater, New Orleans. Everything — from tags and throw-ups to sophisticated pieces — covers its exterior, interior and rooftops. Featured above is the work of  New Orleans-based Reader, You Go Girl, along with others.  What follows is a selection of images I captured there last week:

The streets of New Orleans — particularly those in the Marigny and the Bywater neighborhoods — teem with a wide range of public art.  Pictured above is a mural painted by New Orleans-based visual artist and activist, Brandan Bmike Odums. Several other images captured on my recent visit to NOLA follow:
