McKenna Museum

A quirky personal museum, the McKenna Museum of African American Art sits a block off St. Charles Avenue in a beautifully restored 1850s Greek revival mansion that once belonged to the captain of the steamboat Natchez. Dr. Dwight McKenna’s collection of African-American art includes works by both well-known artists, like the Harlem Renaissance painter William Edward Scott and the outsider artist Clementine Hunter, as well as lesser-known New Orleans painters. The handful of stand-out pieces and a regular schedule of interesting exhibits, lectures, and concerts makes the McKenna a required stop for anyone interested in African-American culture.
