Where to find Street Art in New Orleans

You might be surprised to learn that during my many visits to New Orleans, I’ve spent very little time in the pursuit of street art. That’s partly because there isn’t any street art in the French Quarter, nor should there be, and what little there is in other neighborhoods had, until very recently, eluded me.

The street art/mural movement has started to catch on and I was thrilled to discover, stumble upon, some pretty nice pieces while walking town. I know there is more, and that I’ve missed a number of wonderful pieces, but time was limited and I look forward to seeking them out the next time I’m in town. In the meantime, here’s what I did find…

I love to travel & explore the world both near and far! I do my best to make the most out of life each and everyday! I have two boys and wherever I go, they go! This means they are, at the ages of 9 and 15, world travelers and all around go along guys! There isn’t anywhere I can’t take them! It is my hope this blog will be a way to share the fun things I’ve learned while on our many adventures together!

  1. I think these days there are few towns without street art…except Regensburg, we still have none and will never have any. I like how the NOLA murals really depict a lot of cultural, local scenes familiar with the area! #FarawayFiles

    • Hilary

      I agree, most places do have it, but you’d be surprised by how little there really is in NOLA. I expected there to be more, since it’s such a creative art centric town, but It just wasn’t a thing there, until recently that is. 😊

    • Hilary

      Happily for me there is a lot to be found, though at times it can be tough to locate.

    • Hilary

      Yes, I was excited to find that one… wishing there weren’t so many cars though.

    • Hilary

      Yes, I hadn’t thought it it that way, but it does lose something if you aren’t familiar with Cleveland, which might have a reputation for being a little bit boring. 😘

  2. How do you always find the best street art wherever you go? I was just talking to a friend at work about maybe going to New Orleans for the honeymoon, and he gave me lots of tips about the French Quarter, and now I have street art outside of that too! #FarawayFiles

    • Hilary

      Ha! I guess I am determined! I hope you make it to NOLA I have a feeling you’ll love it!

  3. There’s a lot of interesting art here. I think my favourite is the kid with the yellow crayon on the blue building. So clever how the yellow drawing continues on to the street. #farawayfiles

  4. As usual you found some amazing street art, thanks for sharing. There are so many talented people about. #farawayfiles

  5. Awesome you finally got to discover some cool Nola street art. I think my favorite is “What brings you Joy?”, because your boys are in it. What’s more joyous than your kids? #farawayfiles

    It seems that street art is taking off in many places, and I love how it’s evolving into beautiful, thoughtful murals (for the most part). I’d definitely check out a few from this list if I got to visit NOLA. #FarawayFiles

    • Hilary

      It sure is! It’s so nice to see cities embracing this art form. Beautifying instead of blank.

    • Hilary

      Thank you! Yes, that one is great, and I actually know that artist. She’s pretty cool!
