Mardi Gras Indians is an exhibition of new works by painter Robert Freeman and photographer Max Stern that celebrate a history of New Orleans parades coinciding with the City’s 300th anniversary.

On any given day one may encounter a parade, led by a brass band and parade organizers, and followed by the Second Line made up of an ever-growing group of followers who join the procession to enjoy the music and the march.
