The New Orleans Style Makers of 2016

Meet the visionaries whose art is shaping our city



This year's Stylemakers share a common mission of empowerment. Their influence goes to the heart of what makes memorable style: individual expression. Whether their mediums are oil paint, spray paint or a storefront, all send uplifting messages to their communities. And they agree that nothing is impossible. "There's not one thing you cannot do," says Rhonda Findley. "You just have to do it."
