WHAT: "Furnishing Louisiana, 1735-1835," an exhibition

WHEN: Friday, February 24-Sunday, June 17, 2012

Gallery Hours: Tuesdays-Saturdays, 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.; Sundays, 10:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

HOW: Admission is free.

WHY: The Historic New Orleans Collection's next exhibition, "Furnishing Louisiana, 1735-1835," traces the emergence of the distinctive craftsmanship of Creole America-what the New York Times called "a signature Louisiana style."

Early Louisiana furniture reflects the state's eclectic multicultural history and incorporates Caribbean, Canadian, Anglo and European influences.

The display, presented as a companion to THNOC's award-winning publication "Furnishing Louisiana: Creole and Acadian Furniture, 1735-1835," involves 12 galleries showcasing more than 50 pieces of handcrafted furniture from nearly two dozen collections. In addition to the completed pieces, patrons will be able to see the tools, hardware and wood samples used in early Louisiana furniture making.

The exhibition "Furnishing Louisiana" opens Friday, February 24, and will be on view through Sunday, June 17. Admission is free and the galleries are open Tuesday-Saturday, 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., and Sunday, 10:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. For more information, visit http://www.hnoc.org/ or call (504) 523-4662.
