The Mardi Gras Museum


Costumes and Culture

 For MGMCC I conceptualized, designed and built a new contemporary museum in the Historic French Quarter of New Orleans.  Acting as Director I chose the museum title, to reflect the museum mission, created five permanent exhibit galleries and a rotating  guest exhibits gallery. The museum features  a locally handmade gift shop and

 The Costume Closet where visitors are invited to dress up in authentic Mardi Gras Costumes and see what it's like to be King and Queen of Mardi Gras.
