WHY: The 18th Star: Treasures from 200 Years of Louisiana Statehood,” opening August 30, 2011, at 533 Royal St., celebrates the people, events, traditions and cultures that have defined Louisiana since its entrance into the Union on April 30, 1812, as the 18th state. A diverse selection of 50 signature items from The Historic New Orleans Collection’s holdings, the objects are by turns fundamental, quirky and extraordinary.

“The 18th Star” reflects the full span of Louisiana’s history as a state, including a manuscript copy of our first state Constitution, a 19th-century Orleans Parish voting ballot box, a drawing of a group of Cajuns on Bayou Lafourche in 1866, a can of drinking water distributed during Hurricane Katrina’s aftermath and a photograph of a pelicans covered in oil after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. The exhibition will be on view through January 29, 2012, at 533 Royal St. Admission is free, and more information is available at (504) 523-4662 or www.hnoc.org.

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 region.
