Antieau Gallery on Royal Street features not only the work of Chris Roberts-Antieau, but also top works by local and national artists. On a gallery row, it stands out with a distinct creative voice and has become a regular shopping stop for celebrity art lovers. Music and cocktails are often included in the mix.

The Contemporary Arts Center offers every medium from theater to mixed media under its Warehouse District roof. The front window exhibit is always a pause-worthy stop in the heart of the Central Business District.

Jonathan Ferrara Gallery is the grandaddy of the Julia Street arts scene. Ferrara curates works from paintings to photography to metalwork by both local and international artists.

The Front is part of the burgeoning Bywater arts scene, the St. Claude Arts District in particular. The artist-run collective nonprofit gallery is leading the way in the development of New Orleans' contemporary arts scene.
