The Poydras Corridor Sculpture Exhibition
Presented by The Helis Foundation
The Poydras Corridor Sculpture Exhibition presented by The Helis Foundation is the South’s leading rotating public sculpture exhibition.
The Helis Foundation, the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, and The City of New Orleans Department of Parks and Parkways work together to bring interesting and inspiring sculptures to the citizens of and visitors to New Orleans.
The Poydras Corridor Sculpture Exhibition presented by The Helis Foundation has installed over 33 sculptures by artists of local and international acclaim on Poydras Street between Convention Center Boulevard and South Galvez. Prior to being installed on Poydras Street, the Design Advisory Committee of the City of New Orleans City Planning Commission reviews and approves the sculptures for content, location, and safety, exercising its authority to request adjustments when necessary. The Helis Foundation funds every aspect of the exhibition, including the recent installation of lighting along the sculpture pads.
An archive of sculpture images, descriptions, and artist statements are included in the carousel below.
