Murals by Anne Blenker seen at Private Residence, New Orleans - Changing Horizons

Changing Horizons

Item details

This mural takes the viewer to the coastline. The eastern facing wall depicts a sunrise with a fading line of cypress trees disappearing below the horizon. Obscuring this scene is the silhouettes of plant ecology from the surrounding Marigny neighborhood. The Mississippi sits atop where it curves and juts south to dump it’s waters in to the nearing Gulf of Mexico. By collaging together these elements of Southern Louisiana I admire the beauty of living alongside this ecology while also drawing the viewer to geography that has been undergoing significant change and will affect the health of New Orleans in the long run.
