The Art Garage started as an idea during the run of The Frenchmen Art Market (New Orleans’ original open air night market). While working out the specifics for The Art Garage, Frenchmen Art Market was evicted so that the landlord could open his own art market on the property. While we were left feeling uncertain and disheartened, we also saw this eviction as an opportunity. We have watched the dynamic of Frenchmen Street change drastically over the last 5 years and the timing couldn’t have been better. With The Art Garage open, we’ve been receptive to all sorts of events including Shibari demonstrations, fire spinners, weddings, and art shows in addition to art markets. While an art market is not what the space will predominantly be known for, we do want to continue supporting the arts of New Orleans while also entertaining both traditional & nontraditional events. The Art Garage has adopted Frenchmen Art Market’s unique and funky vibe and aesthetically pleasing atmosphere. Our guests will quickly recognize our living room seating, telephone booth, gazebo, one of a kind bathtub and of course, signature string lights and chalk.
