Lieutenant Governor Billy Nungesser and Capitol Park Museum are pleased to announce the exhibition Mitoloji Latannyèr/Mythologies Louisianaises, which explores the French, Creole, and Tunica languages of Louisiana through art and storytelling. Opening on October 21 at Capitol Park Museum, it features more than twenty-five paintings, images, sculptures, and stories, with accompanying texts in Louisiana and International French, Kouri-Vini (Louisiana Creole), and English, plus a special tale in Tunica. According to Dr. Nathan Rabalais, a professor of French and francophone studies at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, the exhibition demonstrates “both the constant evolution and the longevity of Louisiana’s culture.”  

Join us for coffee with the curator, guided tours of the galleries, and activities with language preservation organizations and advocates. Admission is $5. Follow us on Facebook to see updates!
