Nestled among the live oaks of Tulane University’s uptown campus, the Newcomb Art Gallery is a small gem of a museum that encourages visitors to learn about the art of different times, places, and peoples through a diverse array of exhibitions and programming. The gallery presents shows in photography, sculpture, video, painting, and mixed-media by both historically significant and noted emerging artists. Past exhibitions have featured the work of Diane Arbus, Paul Chan, Russel Wright, Marsden Hartley, James Whistler, and Auguste Rodin.

Flanking the entrance of the Newcomb Art Gallery are two late 19th-century Tiffany window triptychs that once adorned the Tulane University Newcomb Chapel. The gallery’s significant collections also reflect the school’s rich artistic heritage with more than 400 examples of metal work, embroidery, and world-renowned pottery produced at Newcomb College from the late 1800s through the early 1900s. Select works from the collection are on semi-permanent view in the adjoining Angela Gregory Gallery while in the central gallery space changing exhibitions of contemporary and historic artwork are presented.

Visitors enjoy programs and special events including lectures, general introductory tours, and educational programs. Those interested in work by current Newcomb Art Department students and faculty may visit the nearby Carroll Art Gallery.

The Newcomb Art Gallery is a 30-minute St. Charles Avenue streetcar ride from Canal Street, and then a short walk through Tulane’s campus to the Woldenberg Art Center. Its programs are free and open to the public. The gallery is fully wheelchair accessible. Unless prior arrangements have been made with gallery staff or security, photography is not allowed.

    It isn't the Tulane/Gravier hood. That's along Tulane Ave. not near Tulane University.

    How did you come up with the neighborhood list? Pretty comprehensive and to be honest I have no idea where some are located. Is there a map to see borders?
