About New Orleans

By year’s end, the Alliance will have invested nearly $1 Million in support of New Orleans artists, arts organizations, and the local community, through funding partnership with The Ford Foundation, The James Irvine Foundation, and our Annual Conference.

The first operas in America were performed in New Orleans in the 1790s, when the Spanish-style townhouses of the French Quarter and the exquisite Greek Revival mansions of the Garden District were built. Restaurants offered foods of many cultures, as well as the distinct Cajun and Creole cuisines. Ante-bellum New Orleans was the musical hotbed of the nation, and artists and craftsmen from around the globe immigrated to the vibrant port.

Today, New Orleans is undergoing a creative renaissance. The city boasts world-class museums, artist studios and galleries line the streets of the Warehouse/Arts District, performing arts groups about. All around the city, historic neighborhoods are being revitalized by beautiful restoration.

Tropical in climate, lush in setting, exotic in architecture, and sensual in atmosphere, New Orleans is a worldly and richly creative environment like no other.
