Art 4 Now A good portion of the crowd at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival is dressed in BayouWear’s colorfully patterned shirts, shorts, skirts, dresses and tops. The lightweight clothing is perfect for “festing in place” or a barbecue on a hot summer’s day. For collectors there is an online gallery of Jazz Fest posters dating back 1975.

Drama Book Shop This book store in Manhattan is the city’s best source for theatrical works, with over 8,000 plays regularly in stock. It struggled for years, but four fellows of Hamilton fame, including musical creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda, banded together in 2019 to buy this cultural institution. It just reopened in a new location on West 38th Street. The online shop has branded journals, pens, coffee cups and book bags for theater lovers and budding playwrights.

Ogden Museum of Southern Art Shop This museum, one of the venues for the Prospect.5 exhibits, holds the largest and most comprehensive collection of Southern art. Items like a book of sketches by renowned Louisiana self-taught artist Clementine Hunter and a framed print of a New Orleans street scene by acclaimed local photographer Trinity Thomas provide a window into the culture of the South.

The Met Store Oh, the glorious things you’ll find at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s online store! A professional watercolor set comes wrapped in a beautiful linen pouch made in Italy. The gardens at The Met Cloisters, the branch devoted to the art and architecture of medieval Europe, is the inspiration for a Sage Leaf Cuff bracelet. Art from The Met infuses the design of the board game Monopoly: The Met Edition Who knew?
