LAYERS OF INTIMACY: Works by the late New Orleans Icon, Franklin Adamsent 

  It's been said New Orleans offers a more direct and sensual experience of life than most places; even its historic architecture often conveys a sense of intimacy. The legendary artist and architect Franklin Adams sensed this, from when he first arrived in 1958 until his death in 2008. Of works such as Bra, Panties, Pleated Skirt (pictured), he said: "In architecture I want façades to suggest what the interiors are like. My nudes, even clothes without bodies in them, are intimate in their up-close detail, vividly and meaningfully observed. Their emphasis is intensely personal, concerned with daily life and, to me, more meaningful and more real than 'larger' subjects or themes could ever be." — D. Eric Bookhardt
