Fleur de Lis

The Fore!Kids Foundation and the Arts Council of New Orleans teamed up to produce these Fleur de Lis that are spread around town through October, 2007.

The 40 fiberglass structures were built by Mardi Gras float king Blain Kern. Artists were chosen by the Arts Council of New Orleans and include local favorites such as Bunny Matthews, Annie Strack, Tuna Seither and Larry Nevil.

The first public art project since Hurricane Katrina, the sculptures will be sold at auction in the fall of 2007. Proceeds will go to 40 different charities supported by the Fore!Kids Foundation.
