A Visit to Studio Be
If you’ve watched my Instagram stories you know I was just in New Orleans and it was amazing (if you don’t already follow me you can do so here!). Bidding the summer farewell in NOLA was a great decision and I managed to cram in a ton of sights, eats and fun while looking like a literal hot mess in every photo (shout outs to the heat index and humidity).
Studio Be was on my list for NOLA in the “must see” category (more on this soon!). Truth be told I flew in, took the shuttle to my hotel in the French Quarter, checked in and immediately took an Uber to Bywater to check it out. I won’t lie: I did stop for tacos and a cocktail first (thanks, Paloma Café!) but walked to Studio Be right after.
The 35,000 square foot warehouse is impossible to miss and impressive when you enter. The artist Brandon “B-mike” Odums is the brain behind this solo project which covers a lot of social and political ground. The history, heroes and everyday people of New Orleans are at the forefront of this impressive art installation and it’s not to be missed.
Studio Be is located in the Marigny/Bywater neighborhood at 2941 Royal Street. Check out their website for the most up to date info and if you want to follow on Instagram you can check out B-mike and Studio Be.
I’ll be posting more info on New Orleans in the coming week or two – dining, drinking, itineraries and more! Have you been recently? I’d love to know how your trip went!
