A new, interactive pop-art exhibit just opened its doors in the french quarter. The ARTmazing Gallery is the first of its kind – the Instagrammable selfie museum is now open on Decatur Street, and features an immersive experience for locals and tourists alike.
Designed by local artist Giselle Monteiro, the 6,000 square foot gallery has a larger than life feeling to it. The fun, photo-friendly exhibits are specifically designed for the perfect selfie. With people looking for alternative activities outside of the typical bar and nightlife scene right now, ARTmazing is the perfect experience hidden right in the heart of the French Quarter.
A unique museum unlike anything else, ARTmazing actually encourages you to become part of the art itself. Visitors will enjoy 17 uniquely themed installations and Instagrammable rooms curated to inspire and showcase creativity, excitement & innovation.
Monteiro found inspiration after encountering an interactive gallery for herself in NYC. She wanted to share the magic with New Orleans. She fell in love with the unique experience, and felt like the magical & unique flavor would be a perfect fit for New Orleans.
“It’s been a labor of love making it all come to life. I hope the gallery serves as a bright, joyful spot for people during an otherwise rocky year.” – Giselle Monteiro founder & local artist
But the museum won’t be just a one-and-done affair. Their art installations evolve with the seasons. So locals can keep coming back whenever they need to restock on their ‘Grammable bank of shots. The gallery just opened their Christmas-themed exhibit – to help spread some holiday cheer!

Other installations include the “Millionaire’s Room,” which features a money rain that offers guests the chance to twirl around while surrounded by a million dollars. “The Rainbow installation” is another hands-on exhibit where visitors are invited to paint on canvases to create their own unique piece of art. The art will be auctioned off and the proceeds will be donated to local charity BYOBikes.
