THNOC’s New Orleans Antiques Forum Sells out for Fourth Year

July 2011 | New Orleans, LA — The Historic New Orleans Collection proudly announces that the 2011 New Orleans Antiques Forum, which will take place August 5–7 in the French Quarter, is sold out for the fourth year.

Attendees from 12 states—including California, Massachusetts and Virginia—plus Washington, D.C. will travel to The Collection’s Williams Research Center for this year’s program, “French at Heart: Continental Influence in the Gulf South.” The sessions will explore the pervasive influence of French style and French design on decorative arts in the southern United States with nearly a dozen local and national experts on decorative arts.

Established following Katrina to promote New Orleans and the region as a cultural destination and to help businesses in the area, the New Orleans Antiques Forum is designed for a general audience and is accessible to scholars, longtime antiques enthusiasts and newcomers to the field. The 2011 talks will cover a diverse array of topics, tracing the French artistic presence in the Gulf South through an examination of maps, portraits, tapestries, porcelain, silver, fashion and gardens. His Excellency François Delattre, the ambassador of France to the United States, will serve as honorary chair of the 2011 New Orleans Antiques Forum. The sponsor hotel for the event is the Hotel Monteleone, 214 Royal Street.

Additional support comes from the New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau; the Coypu Foundation; Garrity Print Solutions, a Harvey Company; World Trade Center, New Orleans; Dorian Bennett, Sotheby’s International Realty; Royal Antiques; French Antique Shop, Inc.; Consulate General of France in New Orleans; New Orleans Silversmiths; Neal Auction Company; Antoine’s Restaurant; The Azby Fund; The Schon Charitable Foundation; Community Coffee; Premium Parking; and the Omni Royal Orleans.
