1941 – 1945

Higgins built the boat to win The War. With WWII in full swing, the U.S. military needed a better way to land troops on a beach. Andrew Higgins, a New Orleanian shipbuilder with a history of helping trappers, oil-drillers and bootleggers, had just the thing. Over a four-year period, Higgins Industries built 20,000 LVCPs (aka “Higgins

Boats”), which allowed troops to storm beaches quickly through an innovative door mechanism. President Eisenhower declared: “Andrew Higgins is the man who won the war for us.” Today, The National WWII Museum stands in New Orleans as testament to this accomplishment.

Inside New Orleans

Artist We Love: Terrance Osborne One of New Orleans’ most outspoken artists and cultural ambassadors talks influences, new projects and giving back to his hometown. Tell us a little about your background, growing up in New Orleans. My parents moved around the city a lot, mostly Tremé and the Seventh and Sixth Wards. I’ve lived everywhere in the city from New Orleans East to Uptown to the Irish Channel.

Did growing up in different parts of New Orleans influence what you painted? Definitely. When I was a kid, I played with my brothers and sister under houses in the neighborhood. That actually helped me understand the structure of the buildings. I could see the pipes and the wooden boards — basically, how houses were built. So when I’m painting now, I still refer back to what I remember. Most of my houses are painted from memory.

So you paint scenes of New Orleans entirely from memory? Not entirely. I take some photos. The problem of doing it that way, though, is that it restricts you to painting just what you see. I like freedom. The more realistic I try to make my paintings, the more bored I get. I like having a middle ground, interpreting scenes as I see them.

20


Inside New Orleans Are there New Orleans artists whose work influences yours?

you leave feeling good, and you send that feeling out into the world. Or you give it back to me and I create more of it. That reciprocating exchange, I love.

Richard Thomas is a local artist who’s done some Jazzfest posters. He pretty much introduced me to paint. He has a gallery on St. Claude. James Michalopoulos was a big influence, and so was George Dureau. You can find his work in galleries on Julia Street.

Let’s talk a little about charity work you’ve done with the community. What have you been up to on that front, and why is it important?

Where can people see your work locally? I run Terrance Osborne Gallery, right on Magazine in the heart of Uptown right next to Sucré. Overall there are two things I want for the gallery. Number one, I want people to feel like, if they got dropped into the gallery by helicopter and have never been to the city before, that you can experience what New Orleans is like without leaving the gallery. Number two, I want the gallery to appeal to all the senses. When you walk in you smell lavender. Visually, of course, there are the paintings. There’s this rug in here that’s about three inches thick that people walk on, and some of the paintings themselves are tactile. Music is always playing here, too. We’re still working on the other sense — taste — and I’m thinking of keeping candy around.

Why’s it important to make visits to your gallery a multi-sensory experience? I want people, when they look at my work, to be overwhelmed — in the best way. That’s why my colors are so bright, my content is so rich. It’s all about having this exchange between myself and them. I work on the work, and then you experience it, and then

I donate a lot of my work for causes around the city. For example, I did a piece for Xavier University to raise money for creating an arts scholarship, which would go to a student to help them with tuition. I donated the rights to the image to the school, and they can make a lifetime of prints from it to resell. I used to be a teacher, so for me it’s always been about giving back. Teachers often have to go beyond their job to do more than they’re expected. It’s something I do naturally. On top of that, I love my city. I love the culture, how eccentric we are, and how we express ourselves. If I can contribute to that culture, I will. It just makes sense.

What keeps you coming back to that — painting scenes of New Orleans culture?

Terrance Osborne’s NOLA Favorites • Terrance Osborne Gallery • Visual Jazz Art Gallery • Michalopoulos Gallery • Magazine Street galleries and shops • New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival • Julia Street art galleries

I don’t see how I would do anything else. You create what you know. That’s what I grew up seeing. My content is an expression of my upbringing.

• Frenchmen Street music venues

I want you to walk up to my work and say, “this is wonderful and feels positive.” That’s what I feel when I’m working and I want that to be evident. Art is meant to be shared. I have my viewer in mind when I’m creating, and the paintings I make come from that place that we all have that feels great.

Architecture Behind the Scenes Visit these historical homes to learn about New Orleans’ iconic architectural styles

Lafitte’s Blacksmith Shop ©Miles/Cheryl Gerber

Creole Cottage According to legend, pirate brothers Jean and Pierre Lafitte once hid out in the circa-1732 Bourbon Street tavern known as Lafitte’s Blacksmith Shop, which is among the oldest bars in the nation. It is an example of a Creole Cottage, an architectural style that’s easy to spot for its high, steep side gable roofs, brick chimneys and wooden storm shutters. Look for other Creole Cottages-turned-businesses in the French Quarter, including the award-winning Creole restaurant Bayona.

Center Hall Cottage Legends have lived at the 1820s-era BeauregardKeyes House. Former residents include world champion chess player Paul Morphy, Civil War hero P.G.T. Beauregard and master novelist Frances Parkinson Keyes. Learn their tales at this museum, a Center Hall Cottage whose architectural style is notable for having one-and-a-half stories with a front entrance, columns running the length of a wide front porch (with its door centered) and side-gabled roofs. Another outstanding example of the Center Hall Cottage style is Ashton’s Bed and Breakfast in Esplanade Ridge.

Creole Townhouse

Greek Revival House

From the balconies of The Pontalba Apartments in Jackson Square, residents have witnessed countless weddings and more than 160 years of Mardi Gras celebrations. Visit the dozen-plus restaurants and shops on the Pontalba Apartment’s ground floor, and check out the building itself — its Creole Townhouse style is notable for having two to four stories, hidden rear courtyards, wrought iron balconies and brick or stucco exteriors.

Oak Alley Plantation, a former sugar plantation and cattle ranch, is among Louisiana’s most-visited house museums. View 28 giant oak trees leading up to the big house, and take note of what makes it a Greek Revival home: Full-height porches with round columns or blocked piers, a parapet (a short wall running the length of the roof) and the wide, flat trim around the outside windows and doors called a “Greek-key surround.”

Other Creole Townhouses include restaurant Pere Antoine and gift store Forever New Orleans.

See more Greek Revival beauties at Houmas House Plantation & Gardens and Nottoway Plantation.

Double Gallery House

Shotgun House

Two stories with three openings across the front— that’s what makes a Double Gallery House. Degas House bed-and-breakfast and museum is a perfect example. Impressionist painter Edgar Degas visited his American family here in 1872 and left the city inspired; some of his best works depict New Orleans life. You’ll also be inspired by the sight of this and other Double Gallery Houses, which have deep-set covered porches on the first and second floors, and a front door that’s typically on the left or right side of the porch.

You’ll see shotgun homes throughout town, but not all of them have a story like Creole restaurant Rue 127. Built in the late 1800s, the building was moved across town from Bayou St. John to Uptown, and served as an illegal gambling hall in the 1950s. Shotgun architecture is notable for its long, narrow layout that’s one room wide (two rooms if it’s a “double” shotgun), lack of a front yard, and a layout that features one room opening into the next, without hallways.

Double Gallery Houses are found throughout the city and include African-American museum Le Musée de f.p.c., Fairchild House Bed and Breakfast and Terrell House.

Family Fun in New Orleans New Orleans is perfect for families on the go. Explore, learn, play and dine your way across the Crescent City.

EXPLORE Start your New Orleans adventure — where else? — in the city’s exotic, historic French Quarter. The “Vieux Carré,” as it’s also known, has family excitement for days. Make the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas one of your first stops. There, children can get to know some curious creatures of the deep at such attractions as the Great Maya Reef and Gulf of Mexico exhibits. The penguin enclosure is always a crowd pleaser (you can’t not smile when you see these guys up close), and the sea otter pool is home to some adorable friends. Be sure to bring your camera. Nearby is the Entergy Giant Screen Theater, where nature is brought to the (very) big screen via exciting documentaries you won’t see anywhere else. Next stop is the Audubon Insectarium. The world of these multi-legged wonders comes alive at the Butterfly Garden and the Underground Gallery, where visitors are invited to “be the bug” while walking through an exhibit filled with giant animatronic insects. The New Orleans Jazz National Historical Park has family-friendly events and a JAZZ Junior Ranger program filled with activities. Wear your ranger badge proudly! Getting around the Quarter is easy, but for a change of pace, take a Royal Carriages tour through the neighborhood. These mule-drawn carriages are a blast from the past and are both fun and educational —your driver can tell you all about New Orleans’ history. Speaking of getting around in style, City Sightseeing Hop-On Hop-Off Tour picks up passengers in open-air double decker buses for narrated tours throughout the city. Visitors can “hop off” at designated stops, check out the sights, and hop back on the next bus 30 minutes later.

LEARN Kids with curious minds have a lot to look forward to in New Orleans. The Louisiana State Museum network tells the history of our fascinating state — one worth checking out is The Presbytere, whose Mardi Gras exhibit will get visitors in the Carnival mood. “Sea” another side of history at the New Canal Lighthouse. This maritime museum is a replica of the original 1839 lighthouse on Lake Pontchartrain that once guided ships to shore. The Louisiana Children’s Museum is another attraction that combines education and fun in a way that only New Orleans can. Here, young visitors can pilot a tugboat at the Little Port of New Orleans or stand inside a giant bubble. Venture to Mardi Gras World to see Carnival magic in the making. Many of New Orleans' most spectacular Mardi Gras floats are made here, and the facility is open for tours.

Adventure in City Park At City Park, the possibilities for outdoor family fun are endless! Here are just a few of the many activities you can enjoy there: Besthoff Sculpture Garden ©Miles/Chris Granger

There’s also BooKoo Bounce, New Orleans’ only indoor inflatable playground, where children can run wild on massive inflatable bouncers, slides and obstacle courses. For an even faster thrill ride, there’s NOLA Motorsports Park. New Orleans’ premier motorsports facility has a range of speedy go-karts that are suited for children of different sizes, as well as heart-racing action for grown-ups — you can bring your own car on the track or rent one of the high-octane rides there.

Café Du Monde © Louisiana Department of Culture, Recreation & Tourism

EAT New Orleans restaurants are made for fun-loving families. Mulate’s was designed to be the ultimate kid-friendly restaurant: The owners’ daughters weighed in on foods for the made-from-scratch kids menu. After your meal, get dancing: Mulate’s presents live Cajun music nightly, and the dance floor does fill up. Café Du Monde is a must-taste, serving warm beignets (a French donut, pronounced ben-yays), chocolate milk and chicory coffee. Take a picture of the family member who gets the most powdered sugar on them! Swing by Deanie’s Seafood in the French Quarter for fried shrimp and crawfish tails, Central Grocery for their tasty muffulettas or Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. for their Cajun shrimp. Dare the family to try something new like the gator bites at The Crazy Lobster in the Central Business District. This eatery offers live music nightly, and all day on Saturdays and Sundays. Still hungry? Try Mother’s Restaurant, a down-home, cozy joint that's been serving up soul food and Creole dishes since 1938.

In 1929, restaurateurs Bennie and Clovis Martin gave free sandwiches to striking streetcar workers as a sign of solidarity, often saying “here comes another poor boy.” These days, you order your own po-boy “dressed” with lettuce, tomato, pickles and mayo, served up with a variety of meats and cheeses.

NEW ORLEANS’

TOP SOUVENIRS LOCAL COOKBOOK

t ©Cat/Flickr Art at French Marke

When you think about New Orleans you can’t help but think about the city’s food — over-stuffed po-boys, spicy gumbos, flaming desserts. Fortunately, you can take these amazing flavors home with you by picking up a cookbook devoted to one of our famous restaurants or written by one of our many celebrity chefs.

FLEUR-DE-LIS Originally a symbol for French royalty, this lily-like emblem is prevalent throughout New Orleans culture, from the city’s flag to the uniforms of its beloved football team, the New Orleans Saints. Pick out a piece of jewelry or apparel with this iconic symbol.

SAINTS T-SHIRT Enthusiasm for Saints football runs deep. Get your credentials — a black-andgold tee and pair of pom-poms — and join the other proud members of the “Who Dat Nation.”

FESTIVAL POSTER Purchase a commemorative festival poster and relive our food-filled, music-blaring, dance-your-tail-off celebrations long after the stage is empty. Some festivals offer numbered, signed and remarqued prints, increasing their collectible value.

CD FEATURING LOCAL MUSICIANS When your ears perk up at the sound of a street musician’s trumpet in the French Quarter or the booming voice of a Cajun songstress at a Frenchmen Street club, ask if the artist has a CD for sale. Many do, so fill your playlist with the sounds of our city.

INSIDER’S TIP

New Orleans skyline ©Sam Camp

Royal Street Shopping ©Chris Granger

The French Quarter is best known for rowdy nightlife scenes, but during the day, it’s a retail paradise. According to New Orleans Magazine, “Shopping in the French Quarter can be just as fruitful as going to the mall and way more fun.” Their top tip for this 13-block-by-6-block district? Wear comfortable shoes!

WHERE Y’AT? 90

Since New Orleans is nestled between a bend in the Mississippi River and Lake Pontchartrain, you’re likely to hear locals give directions such as “lake side” (north), “river side” (south), Uptown (west) and Downtown (east). Check out the map in the Transportation listings, where you’ll find detailed maps of the Garden District, Downtown, French Quarter and metro area.

STEP ABOARD

Streetcar ©Denise Chambers

Streetcars (no, they’re not trolleys) have been a part of New Orleans’ public transportation since the first half of the 19th century. In fact, you can thank the streetcar for the creation of our most celebrated sandwich, the po-boy. Bennie and Clovis Martin are credited with first serving the sandwiches to striking streetcar motormen and conductors in 1929. In the mid-1900s, buses replaced many of the iconic vehicles, but after several decades our streetcars made a comeback. Now four different lines travel throughout the city, letting you explore for an affordable $1.25 (exact change required).

PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION New Orleans has a modern network of highways and roads. Parking, however, is at a premium, particularly in the French Quarter. Taxis and public transportation can take you to points not within walking distance.

TAXIS Rates are $3.50 plus $2 per mile (or 30¢ per 1/8 mile) thereafter. During peak visitor times or special events, taxi rates may increase but will be posted. A fixed rate of $36 (two people) is charged from the airport to most areas of New Orleans; for parties of more than two, the fare is $15 per person. RATES SUBJECT TO CHANGE. BUS Bus routes extend to almost every corner of the city, and the fare is $1.25 (plus 25¢ per transfer). Express buses cost $1.50.
