I've seen alot of art in my day, but I was completely blown away by the talent and depth of Mike B's work. Extremely powerful messages, beautiful artistry, and at times an emotional experience (especially the Katrina section of the exhibit). Definitely make this part...More

See multiple works of colorful art by talented artist and social commentator B Mike. Admission is $5. You can view it all in about 20 minutes, in a warehouse-style, large, multi-room space.

There's not much around there but who cares? Studio Be is powerful and sends clear messages. It's located in a warehouse or 2 or 3...all sorts of history to learn from. A MUST DO when in NOLA.

We saw a National Geographic documentary on New Orleans and they interviewed the talented artist Mike B so we knew we wanted to see his studio when we visited New Orleans. Check their Instagram for the latest schedule. We used the website and we showed...More

So much is going on here; it’s well worth the $10 admission price to see the studio and know your dollars are going toward youth art classes, activism and community collaboration. The messages on class and Katrina are powerful and there is a good amount...More

I enjoyed the murals, scenes and settings of Studio Be! Great depiction of the Katrina hurricane crisis. Even better murals of the #BLM movement and historical events in black history. Pictures don't do this place justice, just go and experience it!

I loved this. It can’t really be described so just go. The people up front were very nice and personable. They offer discounts for students and teachers but I think the general admission is $10. It’s worth so much more. Just a heads up, it’s...More

The bywater district is often overlooked by tourists, but it certainly offers a different perspective on this incredible city. Do not go to New Orleans without going to the poignant, emotional, and somber warehouse installation that is Studio Be. From the powerful murals to the...More
