The Dew Drop Inn is a landmark in Central City, New Orleans. Now vacant, in its prime it held a hotel, a barbershop, and a prominent nightclub where icons like Ray Charles played. To beautify the building and generate awareness and interest while its owners raise money for a major renovation, the Tulane City Center designed a large temporary art installation for the facade of the Dew Drop.
