MAY: Terry Kenney, Locked & Loaded, New Orleans Shotguns
For May, graphic artist Terry Kenney explores New Orleans neighborhoods. Kenney’s delights in the precise detail of New Orleans beloved building type, The Shotgun. Whether single, double, camelback or other Arts and Crafts adaptations, New Orleans has the largest stock of historic shotgun houses. It is an efficient use of space found throughout the South, and its popularity is most likely due to its ability to place a lot of people in a small amount of space. According to Robert Cangelosi, The first located usage of the term in local press occurred when a New Orleans’ newspaper wrote on April 15, 1917, “There are hundreds of what is locally known as ‘shotgun houses’ in New Orleans. They are called shotgun houses because you can stand in the front door and shoot the dinner off the stove in the kitchen.”
