Oestreicher Helps Facilitate Sculpture for New Orleans

New Orleans lawyer David Oestreicher leads charge to install sculpture and visual arts program in City of New OrleansNot too long after Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans, David Oestreicher, then-president of the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Foundation, contacted Michael Manjarris to talk about the visual arts in New Orleans.

Manjarris, founder of Artist and Sculpture for New Orleans says Oestreicher took the lead to make sure support was going to the visual arts in New Orleans as well as it’s musical arts and performance venues.

Since that time, Manjarris and Oestreicher have worked to transform the Poydras Street corridor (and other areas of the city) into an outdoor art gallery — inspired by the Sculpture on Park Avenue program in New York City. Manjarris said Oestreicher saw support going to musicians but wanted to make sure that visual artists also were getting help.
