The New Orleans Tricentennial Draws Near; How Will You Celebrate?
Made in New Orleans: The Past in Print showcases items from our collections that were printed or published in New Orleans. The exhibition commemorates the 300th anniversary of the Crescent City's founding. This eclectic mix of materials — ranging in date from 1805 to 2009 — serves as a metaphor for the city itself.
Curating printed works through this sharply focused lens has enabled us to reveal both stories of international import in publications well-known to historians, along with local tales that have been hidden in history, found only among the shadows of pages within ephemeral publications. “Made in New Orleans” does not strive to paint a complete portrait of the city, and as a result, it is in many ways just as revealing in its inclusion of items that pave the scholarly road less-traveled.
Although we provide the utmost luxury at The Crossing Apartments in Denham Springs, Louisiana, we realize that you need to get out and socialize with those in your surrounding community. This event gives you the chance to do just that! Don’t hesitate to attend today!
