Stopped in to see the Mickalene Thomas "Waiting for Prime-Time Star" exhibit. Amazing show and what a friendly and lovely staff. They took time to greet me (not on the fly but really greet with sincerity), talk (great conversation with the student on front desk duty graduating in May) and answer questions. Even as I headed out the Deputy Director... More

It’s a sweet museum, it feels good to be there, with an interesting range of exhibitions. The story behind the Tiffany windows is great. Also, the Tulane campus is beautiful. I thought the “Women of Newcomb” exhibition was interesting. The Newcomb was a lovely surprise.

The Newcomb Art Museum is nested on the first floor of one of the original Newcomb College buildings, on Tulane's beautiful uptown campus. Besides a great collection of Newcomb Pottery, much of it now on tour in a Smithsonian organized show, I'm not sure what is in the permanent collection here. The exhibit space is not large; just three rooms.... More

I took a 50-60 minute streetcar ride to Tulane, walked around campus for about 30-40 minutes looking for the right place (abysmal signage) and finally found the Gallery. The Degas exhibit was wonderful and offered a view of the painter not commonly seen. When I asked where the pottery was, I was told that "...they don't have any...". My question... More

The gallery is hidden deep in the Tulane campus but it's a beautiful campus to walk through. It is excellently curated. The displays are at eye level, which makes viewing very pleasant. The beautiful pottery, jewelry, prints, and book bindings were done by young women in the 1920s. There are also two beautiful Tiffany stained glass triptychs in the hallway... More

If the Newcomb women's college exhibition is up (anywhere), definitely go see it for its stunning craftsman style work, not only pottery but textiles and printing. A love walk through the Tulane campus after a streetcar ride from downtown.

Staying in Uptown / Carrollton

Neighbourhood Profile
Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the students living in the area ensure that Uptown and Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s outstandingly good food and live music) are Oak Street and Maple Street. For a truly wild time, the expansive acreage of Audubon Park, with its zoo, golf course, and actual patches of swampy wetlands, means peace and quiet are never too far away.
