World-renowned street artist Swoon has been known to paste walls with real-life scales of her subjects. This time, she's blown it up. Unveiled last Friday at the New Orleans Museum of Art, Swoon's Thalassa is a larger-than-life installation that hangs from the ceiling of the museum's Great Hall. The 20-foot tall piece represents a female deity with extended tentacles rising from the waters. It was inspired by New Orleans' ties to the sea and was made specially for the museum. Thalassa will be hanging there until September 25. Check her out. [NOMA]
