Special Monthly Programming
Black History Month
We believe that the experiences, histories, and stories of Black people should be integrated in all that we do each day. We also understand the significance of Black History Month and plan to highlight these accomplishments in our programming, our libraries, and our special events during the month of February. We will have highlights of contributions in each of our galleries and have invited special guest readers, speakers, and local culture bearers to join us for this special month. More details to come!
Wall of Fame
Come visit our Wall of Fame, which features 30 influential Black Mark Makers from Louisiana, including Irma Thomas, who is also prominently featured in our Jammin’ House and Terrance Osborne, the designer of the Shotgun House in our Make Your Mark Gallery. We also feature many other talents who have made their marks on our city, our state, and all over the world.
Lunar New Year
On February 1st, we will celebrate Lunar New Year! This is the year of the tiger, the king of the jungle, who represents bravery and strength. In which ways will you show your courage this year? Come tell us at our Lunar New Year interactive art activity, which will be set up in Studio in the Park in the days leading up to the new year.
