The Stephens Garage Collection is a collaboration between St Veronica’s Photography and Wisznia | Architecture+ Development that explores and pays homage to the American automobile and its culture through lens based visual art. The collection was commissioned to celebrate the spaces of The Garage, a mixed use development in the heart of the Central Business District of New Orleans.
St Veronica’s Photography realized the client’s vision through individual portfolios and installations created by 10 artists exploring themes such as: contemporary highway symbols, a vacation road trip, the art of parking, and the abstraction of automobile pieces and parts, all while providing the viewer a sense of place unique to Gulf Coast Louisiana.
The artist roster is made up solely of New Orleans based artists, each bringing their unique strengths to the collection. Whether playful, process heavy or narrative, all works are realized in a uniquely New Orleans way.
