As part of New Orleans’ tricentennial activities, the Cabildo has opened a brand-new exhibit, We Love You, New Orleans. Celebrating the people, places, and things that make New Orleans one of the nation’s most unique cities to visitors and residents alike, the exhibition plays as a love letter to the city from the Louisiana State Museum.
“We are proud to announce this exhibition during this tremendous occasion for New Orleans,” said Lt. Governor Bill Nungesser. “New Orleans is an integral part of the fabric of Louisiana, and it has a lasting impact on all those who live here and visit. This unique ‘love letter’ is a fun, educational and entertaining way to honor the city’s 300th birthday.”
Visitors to the exhibition can see more than one hundred artifacts highlighting the uniquely New Orleans versions of architecture, food and drink, music, nightlife and more. The exhibition explores the well-known Crescent City culture of food and music with a Jax beer sign, a collection of historic cookbooks, Sidney Bechet’s saxophone and a jacket worn by Ernie K-Doe.
Mardi Gras – probably the most famous facet of New Orleans – is represented by several pieces, including a Mardi Gras Indian suit and a gown and necklace worn by the 1968 Queen of Carnival. We Love You, New Orleans will be on display through December 2019.
Brookstone Park Apartments, the premier apartments in Covington, Louisiana, is inviting friends and neighbors to attend this unforgettable event!
