Plant installation @ Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans


Ninth Ward Nursery sells plants. We handle plant maintenance for commercial clients. We do installations and planting.

And we also rent plants for events.

One was the opening of Keith Calhoun and Chandra McCormick: Labor Studies, a photographic exhibition featuring photos of sugar cane field workers, sweet potato farmers, dockworkers and other laborers in south Louisiana. The artists have been photographing working-class individuals in Louisiana for decades, and are based in the Lower 9th Ward.

Ninth Ward Nursery supplied plants for the opening of this exhibition. We included displays of sugar cane and sweet potatoes, and supplemented these displays with those of fan palms.

Huge thanks go to the CAC for the collaboration, and we look forward to future projects with the museum.
