Contemporary Art In An Antique City: Looking Back At The Orleans Gallery

The Historic New Orleans Collection
The Orleans Gallery in its early years.

George Dunbar is a contemporary artist from New Orleans whose work has graced the walls and halls of exhibits around the world. In the 1950s, he banded together with several other contemporary artists who identified with the abstract movement known as the New York School. Together, they opened a co-op gallery on Royal Street. In this edition of NOLA Life Stories, Mr. Dunbar describes this moment in contemporary art, which found its nexus at the Orleans Gallery.

This NOLA Life Stories interview was conducted by Mark Cave for The Historic New Orleans Collection and produced for WWNO by Sarah Holtz.
