Luster exhibit walk-through set for Sunday, March 24 at Ogden

A walk-through of an exhibit of black-and-white photos by NOPA member Deborah Luster will begin at 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 24, at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans.

The exhibit, “Tooth for an Eye: Chorography of Violence in Orleans Parish,” focuses on places where Crescent City homicides occurred in recent years.

Luster is known for lush black-and-white photographs that document culture of the American South and in particular, Louisiana. Over the past decade, she has taken photos that explore the effects of crime, punishment and violence in the state.

Admission for the walk-through will be free to Odgen members, with regular admission required for non-members. (Admission charges are listed at the museum website.) The “Tooth for an eye” exhibit will run though April 7.
