Case Study: Revival of the Fittest: Art + Media Outreach Prompts a Post-Katrina Cultural Renaissance in New Orleans

Company: New Orleans Museum of Art Agency: Deveney Communication Timeframe: September 2006-March 2007 Following Hurricane Katrina’s devastation of New Orleans in 2005, the nation of France offered to help rebuild New Orleans’ infrastructure, with special emphasis on the city’s cultural institutions. As part of the country’s commitment, France provided an exhibit of French masterpieces to the New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA) entitled “Femme, Femme, Femme: Paintings of Women in French Society from Daumier to Picasso from the Museums of France.” The Femme art exhibit, given to the New Orleans Museum of Art by France, helped reinvigorated the city in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.
