The Shotgun House, Reimagined: Portrait Of The Artist Robert Tannen

Jun 22, 2018

Decades ago, the New Orleans artist Robert Tannen recognized something emblematic in one of the city's most common forms: the shotgun house. Since then, he's created artistic renderings of the shotgun for galleries and public spaces throughout New Orleans. In this edition of NOLA Life Stories, Mr. Tannen tells historian Mark Cave about the origin of this body of work. 

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