Some of the South's most creative artists, working in such varied media as steam-bent wood, denim, singed paper, and fiber, are finalists for a $10,000 prize from the Gibbes Museum of Art. Read more about them and their work.
Each year the museum chooses an emerging artist or promising art school student from the Mid-South to feature in their own exhibition under the banner Brooks Introduces. The goal is to give the artist exposure and sometimes their first experience working with professional curators and dealing with a larger art-loving audience.
Curator Franklin Sirmans lifted the curtain on Prospect.3, the third iteration of the international art biennial in New Orleans that will take place in venues across the city over three months starting in October.
