Where to Find the Best New Orleans Street Art & Murals

by Dottie

Welcome to another installment of our street art around the world series! This post features incredible street art and murals in New Orleans — a city that oozes character and one of my favorite places anywhere in the world.

Much of the street art around town showcases civil rights and cultural leaders, scenes from the past and present of New Orleans, local residents, and the city’s rich musical tradition.

New Orleans street art adds another bright layer to a city that already shines so brightly. It truly has it all — fascinating history, charming architecture, rich musical tradition, mouthwatering cuisine, just the right amount of grit, and some of the friendliest people you’ll ever meet who don’t mind having a 30-minute conversation with strangers.

New Orleans’s multicultural heritage — with its African, Native American, and European influences — shapes every facet of local culture. This fusion makes New Orleans truly unique, and it is one of the most interesting places, in my humble opinion, to visit in the United States.

Back to the street art. Though the highest concentration of pieces we found are in the funky Bywater and Marigny neighborhoods, you can find them painted on walls and buildings all over the city. If you want to see them all, I suggest you rent a bike, take an Uber, or rent a car. If you stick to the Bywater and Marigny, you can easily cover everything on foot.

Keep scrolling for a full photo tour of street art and murals in New Orleans as well as the exact location of each piece. We will include context and links to artist Instagrams for the pieces where we can find the information.
