June 2011 | New Orleans, LA — Now through July 8, The Historic New Orleans Collection is accepting applications for scholarships to the 2011 New Orleans Antiques Forum. The event will be held August 5 through 7 at The Collection’s Williams Research Center in the French Quarter.

Eligible applicants must be full-time undergraduate or graduate students enrolled in degree programs in art history, museum studies, studio arts or related fields. Application instructions are available on The Collection’s Web site at www.hnoc.org/programs/antiquesforum-scholarship.html. Complete application packages may be submitted by mail or fax. All materials must be received by 5:00 p.m., Friday, July 8, 2011.

About the New Orleans Antiques Forum

The New Orleans Antiques Forum is an annual program that encourages and showcases the scholarship of regional decorative arts history. The Historic New Orleans Collection established the event after Hurricane Katrina to promote the Gulf Coast as a cultural destination and to generate economic support for local businesses. The first New Orleans Antiques Forum took place in 2008 and proved to be a sold-out success, as have all subsequent programs.

With the theme “French at Heart: Continental Influence in the Gulf South,” the 2011 forum will explore the pervasive influence of French style and French design on decorative arts in the southern United States. The weekend will include presentations by nearly a dozen speakers from institutions such as Winterthur Museum, Library & Garden; Philadelphia Museum of Art; Colonial Williamsburg; and The Historic New Orleans Collection. Featured topics include silver, tapestries, Paris porcelain and garden design. For a full schedule, visit www.hnoc.org/antiques.htm or call (504) 523-4662.

Registration is now open; packages start at $100. Register by telephone at (504) 523-4662 or online at www.hnoc.org/antiques.htm.

Founded in 1966, The Historic New Orleans Collection is a museum, research center and publisher dedicated to the study and preservation of the history and culture of New Orleans and the Gulf South. For more information about The Collection, visit www.hnoc.org or call (504) 523-4662.
