(AP) The first phase of a public art project to install the work of Southern sculptors around New Orleans has been completed in time to be seen by visitors in the city for this Sunday's Super Bowl.

The Ogden Museum of Southern Art said Thursday that the first phase includes seven sculptures placed along the busy Poydras Corridor and Convention Center Boulevard. The Ogden is curating the exhibition along with the Sculpture for New Orleans organization, founded in 2008.

Eventually, the exhibition is to feature 25 sculptures from Southern artists.

The seven sculptors whose work is featured in the latest project include Wesley Wofford and Jim Gallucci of North Carolina, James Surls and Ed Wilson of Texas, James Kimes of Mississippi, Russell Whiting of Louisiana and John Henry of Tennessee.
