The image of boarded up shops is both familiar and disheartening here in New Orleans. A couple of months into the COVID-19 pandemic, local graffiti artist Josh Wingerter found a way to create beauty out of these barriers. The Historic New Orleans Collection interviewed Josh for their project, From The Frontline: Narratives of the COVID-19 Pandemic in New Orleans.
This NOLA Life Stories interview with artist Josh Wingerter was conducted by Mark Cave for The Historic New Orleans Collection. It was produced for WWNO by Sarah Holtz.
