Hubig's Sky is my tribute to a favorite New Orleans memory: Hubig's Pies. The painting is a nighttime view of the lot on 2417 Dauphine St. in the Marigny that Hubig's Pies occupied before it burned in 2012. There are now condos on this lot, so this painting references how it looked before the condos were built. With the fire passed a 90-year-old New Orleans institution.
The company was due to reopen in new production facility in Jefferson Parish in 2020, but new information about whether the reopening has been pushed back is hard to find.
