100 Music Legends in 1 Mural At New Orleans International Airport

Alaska Airlines canceled our direct flight from Washington, DC to Seattle, WA on Sunday. And the rebooked route home gave the Stuck at The Airport team the gift of a 7-hour layover at New Orleans International Airport (MSY).

That gave us plenty of time to check out the fun shops, the bars, and the restaurants.

And all of the art.

We could identify just a few of the people pictured in this three-panel mural. And we’ve reached out to the airport for a key or list of them all.

In the meantime, let us know how many musicians you can ID in this great mural by Richard C. Thomas, called The Roux, which depicts 100 music legends from New Orleans.

Update: Here’s a brochure sent to us by MSY Airport that includes a list of all the people featured in the mural:
