New Orleans: good news, bad news

It's been six months since the hurricane. I went to New Orleans this past weekend to the first exhibit opening at the New Orleans Museum of Art since then. They are on a skeleton staff (maybe 25 of the pre-storm 85), will be open only three days a week, but they pulled together and did a fantastic job of bringing the museum back to life. Friday they opened up,Saturday was the party for the Kipniss opening, and Sunday they hosted the Mid-City Arts Market. Music, dancing, vendors, food (Juan's Flying Burrito!!!), and lots and lots of people on a beautiful spring day. Here are a few pics from Sunday. In the next post: the bad news.
