A seasonally inspired art gallery in our lobby. Art Collection – Where Y’Art
Stroll through the corridor behind our lobby and experience an extension of the latest exhibition on display at Where Y’Art. A Royal Street Gallery in the heart of the Marigny, Where Y’Art is a true community for artists and art lovers in New Orleans.
Celebrating the cultural infusions that have informed the distinct flavor of New Orleans for 300 years, the creative palates behind the Compère Lapin – Chef Nina Compton and bar maven Abigail Gullo – have stepped out of the kitchen and away from the bar to curate Art of Flavor: Part One, exploring the distinct flavor of New Orleans in the abstract sense, dishing Compton and Gullo’s interpretations of the Crescent City this time not by menu, but by its artists.
Just as the culinary traditions of New Orleans have drawn influence from a melting pot of European, African and West Indian cultures, Art of Flavor: Part One depicts New Orleans through the works of a diverse community of artists whose works speak to the complexity that defines the creative essence of New Orleans, one that can be experienced at a table, over drinks or on a gallery wall.
