Get your cameras ready, New Orleans!
An incredible art gallery is in town, and it can only be described as a total explosion of colors and creativity. ARTmazing Gallery was started by local artist Giselle Monteiro, who became inspired after coming across an interactive gallery in New York City. Located right in the heart of the French Quarter, it serves as a place for people to reconnect with their creative side and, most importantly, to have some fun! Quite literally every Instagrammer’s dream come true, this art gallery invites visitors to be a part of the art, to complete the installations.
The space is massive. ARTmazing Gallery features no less than 13 themed-installations and unique rooms to let your imagination run absolutely wild. Together with its inspiring event spaces, the gallery covers a whopping 6,000 square feet. The Millionaire’s Room is an obvious crowd favorite. It features a money rain in which visitors are surrounded by – you guessed it – a million dollars. Because really, who doesn’t want to be a millionaire? Other popular installations include a moody LED light room, a swanky clawfoot bathtub and even a throne.
And now until January 3, the gallery has special holiday-themed installations so that you can soak in all those holidiay vibes. There are even private photo shoots available to ensure you get that perfect shot for your holiday cards!
Another noteworthy feature of ARTmazing Gallery is its Rainbow installation, where visitors are welcomed to paint on canvases of their own. Each piece of artwork is later auctioned off and all proceeds are donated to local charities.
If you’ve been looking for a chance to swap out that profile picture or even get some quirky family photos, this is it. Bring your best photographer skills and let the amazing spaces inspire you to free that inner artist.
The gallery is open Thursdays through Sundays from 11 am to 8 pm. Tickets are $25 for adults and $20 for kids.
