“Wild at heart” captures the life and culture of those living and visiting New Orleans. “Down by the Bayou” depicts another side of nature and how things would be if we came together no matter our differences and exercise love. “Juke Joint” is two pieces and it captures the love of music, and dance. The woman also has Mardi Gras beads which ties in to Burbon Street and it’s parades. Lastly, New Orleans is known for voodoo and witchcraft so I felt it necessary to include what some may look at as demonic but others as a way of life.The culture was different, the people were free and living life. Everyone seemed to be happy regardless their social/economic status, and for a little while race was not an issue. The people were Wild at heart…. free!
