To celebrate her role as Music Ambassador, the exhibit will showcase a new portrait of Jelly created by artist Ayo Scott, rendered on bamboo shutters and framed by curtains, creating the illusion of a window shade masterpiece. “Jelly,” a talented singer and songwriter, has been a part of the New Orleans music scene for over a decade and has performed with artists such as Galactic, Tank and the Bangas, Big Freedia, HaSizzle, Cimafunk and was recently featured in the remake of Roadhouse. 

“The Brass and The Beat” exhibit will be replacing the museum’s “Makin’ Groceries” installation and pays homage to New Orleans’ iconic brass bands and musicians celebrating their profound influence on the city’s musical heritage.

In this new themed section of the museum, visitors will encounter the Brassarium—an interactive musical terrarium curated by native New Orleanian artist and teacher Marcus Brown. This fun, new exhibit for the museum invites guests to “play” its brass instruments via custom interactive technology.

Visitors can learn more about the history and evolution of brass bands through the exhibit’s accompanying microsite. The new installation also features a portrait of master bass player George Porter Jr. by artist Carl Joe Williams.
