Ambitious (But Failed) New Orleans Arts Center To Be Sold
"Once built, it was supposed to become an instant Crescent City tourist attraction. But there was a costly redesign required to preserve an existing historic building and then the usual spate of construction complications. Then came Hurricane Katrina, and later, a national economic downturn. But those troubles were surmountable. The real trouble was intrinsic; ArtWorks, like Marie Antoinette, was doomed by grandiosity." New Orleans Times-Picayune 11/29/13
