PONTALBA EXHIBIT LECTURE SERIES
6:00PM TO 7:00PM IN THE CABILDO,
ON THE 2ND FLOOR GALLERY
**LIGHT RECEPTION FROM 5:30PM TO 6:00PM
This Thursday, January 17, my talented friend and Guest Curator, Randolph Delehanty, Ph.D., will lead the exhibition lecture at the Cabildo. I encourage you to go and soak in the rich history and the backstory of the Baroness de Pontalba and the Rise of Jackson Square Exhibition.
This is the first of three different talks regarding the exhibit presented by the Louisiana Museum Foundation (LMF) and the Louisiana State Museum. Visit the LMF's facebook page for more details.
The talk is complimentary. I hope to see you there and encourage you to join me in supporting the LMF.

One of the most exciting moments of my life happened: helping the Louisiana State Museum and the Louisiana Museum Foundation celebrate the New Orleans Tricentennial.
My friends, the Baron & Baroness de Pontalba and their family, came to New Orleans from France for this epic event: The Founders Ball and the launch of the Baroness Pontalba & the Rise of Jackson Square Exhibition at the Cabildo.
