Photographer, New Orleans native and Gulfport, Miss., resident Bruce Keyes unveils “Spirit of New Orleans,” an exhibition of images from his book by the same name, tomorrow at the George & Leah McKenna Museum of African American Art. The 228-page black-and-white volume — “forever locked in the pre-Katrina era,” Keyes’ Web site states — captures scenes from 30 years of Jazz Fests and jazz funerals, from the French Quarter to Magazine Street. Writes art critic Arin Black, “It’s the sweet decay, the slow motion, the willingness to stop and let the joy seep in, that lets New Orleans take hold and not let go, and it’s present in every single image of Spirit of New Orleans.” The opening reception is 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
