Michel De Broin and The Third of May Arts
New Work Project Grant
Harpo Foundation is pleased to have supported Majestic, a major public sculpture by Michel de Broin, commissioned by The Third of May Arts. This sculpture is a satellite-shaped structure constructed from decommissioned New Orleans street lamps that is illuminated at night. It was produced and constructed entirely in New Orleans with the assistance of local artisans, using street lamp poles and fixtures that were damaged and displaced post-Katrina.
Majestic is located in downtown New Orleans, in the Central Business District, on a vacant lot at Common Street and South Rampart Street, not far from the French Quarter and is illuminated each evening. (Source: The Third of May Arts website)
