About The Poydras Corridor Sculpture Exhibition presented by The Helis Foundation

Sculpture for New Orleans began shortly after Hurricane Katrina by artist and curator Michael Manjarris with the mission of lifting the spirits of the people of New Orleans through public art and to provide local and regional artists the opportunity to show in a public venue. In cooperation with the Ogden Museum of Southern Art and The City of New Orleans Department of Parks and Parkways, the Poydras Corridor Sculpture Exhibition presented by The Helis Foundation was launched in January of 2013. The project is entirely underwritten by The Diana Helis Henry and The Adrienne Helis Malvin Art Funds of The Helis Foundation.
