UNO documentary: Art and music at NOMA
With the annual Julia Street bash about all things artful that is White Linen Night coming up on Saturday, it's timely to think about art and artists. And music, too.
Artist Dario Robleto explores both in "The Prelives of the Blues," an exhibition on view through Sept. 16 at the New Orleans Museum of Art. The show focuses on the transference of music across multiple generations. Robleto uses a variety of media in his intricately handcrafted works.
UNO film student Laura Sumich recently talked to Robleto about his motives and his methods, in this short documentary.
