What is French in Louisiana?

July 14, 2020 – September 30, 2020

French cultural influence is rooted in Louisiana and the vast Cajun and Creole population has greatly contributed to its preservation through food, language and music. In celebration of this heritage, the New Orleans Photo Alliance, the French Chamber of Commerce, the Alliance Française, the French Consulate of New Orleans and The Historic New Orleans Collection present the exhibit “What is French in Louisiana.” The exhibit explores photographers’ different interpretations and responses to the theme.
