We are thrilled to welcome Pamela Arceneaux from the Historic New Orleans Collection. Ms. Arceneaux will discuss the latest exhibition at the HNOC, “Storyville: Madams and Music.” “Storyville” revives the sights and sounds of New Orleans’s former red-light district a century after its closing. Using a diverse display of photographs, maps, postcards, contemporary objects, and the infamous blue books that served as directories to the District’s prostitutes, the exhibition encourages a better understanding of the music, people, and businesses that shaped the complicated legacies of Storyville. For those interested, Ms. Arcenaux will guide attendees to HNOC to explore the exhibit. Storyville: Madams and Music guides visitors through the rise and fall of the neighborhood, that helped shape the notorious reputation that adheres to New Orleans today. Check it out online!
