Newcomb Art Museum in New Orleans, LA

Woldenberg Art Center (Bldg #81) New Orleans, LA 70118
The Newcomb Art Museum devotes its exhibitions to socially engaged art, community transformation, and civic dialogue.&

 Located in New Orleans, Louisiana at Tulane University’s Woldenberg Art Center, the museum also pays homage to art and designs created by women.

 

Among the collections are Newcomb arts and crafts, Tiffany windows, paintings, sculptures, works on paper, and photography. Newcomb's pottery dates to the English Arts and Crafts movement in the first half of the twentieth century. The Newcomb family commissioned several stained-glass windows created by Tiffany & Company. Resurrection, Good Samaritan, and Newcomb Fountain are three of the nine windows once installed at several locations of the Tulane campus. Newcomb University's paintings and sculptures include an assortment of styles and subjects from various artists. Perhaps the most fascinating collections are the historical and fine art works on paper made from printmaking and drawings. Birds of America by John James Audubon and social realist lithographs by Caroline Durieux are two favorites. Historical and contemporary photographers include Andy Warhol, Garry Winogrand, and Donna Ferrato.
