Good news from New Orleans

NOMA | New Orleans Museum of Art

After seven months, many layoffs (and some rehirings) and all the other devastation of Katrina, NOMA is reopening on March 3, 2006. This, to me, is a sign that New Orleans will rebuild, will survive, and that people there mean that the city will return to being the cultural mecca it has always been. Life without art is unthinkable; if the city is to survive, its music and art and literature must be nourished as well.
