Featuring original and collected works from the home of highly acclaimed New Orleans artist, furniture maker, designer, and collector Mario Villa (1953-2021).

The extravagant interior of his home was overflowing with objet d'arts, paintings, sculpture, furniture, decorative arts, and other wares that beautifully highlighted the artist's own rich Latin American heritage.
