Avalon Archives Museum of Roots and Rock and Roll will be exhibiting the painting "Bourbon Street" by Cuban-American Artist Jose Acosta. Ned Moran the owner of the Museum chose to exhibit this painting in the Museum because of the importance of Bourbon Street to the music world.
Jose Acosta was delighted to have his work exhibited along with this magnificent collection of music memorabilia. Jose said, " I listen to music while I create, from Bob Dylan, Elton John to Jazz and Afro Cuban Music. So I believe strongly in the connection between the visual arts and music"
