Something Old, Something New: Collecting in the 21st Century

Something Old, Something New showcases some of the most significant items acquired by The Collection since the year 2000.

Multiple curators selected objects that reflect the broad range of Louisiana's history as represented through library materials, manuscripts, pictorial items and new media. Included are sheet music for "The Mysterious Axman's Jazz (Don't Scare Me Papa)"; a duck decoy crafted in 2008 using traditional Louisiana carving methods; and photographs by Michael P. Smith, Ernest Bellocq and C. Bennette Moore. The selections cover the nuances of the historical record and subjects both familiar and obscure.
