These are pictures from an art exhibit I visited today - huge murals made of recycled Mardi Gras beads, which of course are available in great abundance here! This were really a beautiful and unexpected show. What a feast for the eyes. The photo on the right is a detail of the plantation house mural so that you can see the beads. Amazing work.
