Birds of a Feather: Wildfowl Carving in Southeast Louisiana, the new two-part exhibition from The Historic New Orleans Collection, offers an introduction to the art and history of an important Louisiana tradition. Part 1, Early Working Decoys, features the utilitarian, yet artistic, expressions created in seven geographic areas of Louisiana from the mid-19th through the mid-20th centuries. The exhibition continues with Part 2, Contemporary Carvings. This segment traces the evolution of decoy carving from a folk art to a competitive art and features decoys by some of today’s most celebrated decorative carvers, including Jimmie Vizier and Tan and Jett Brunet.
