New exhibition showcases recent additions to THNOC's holdings

WHO: The Historic New Orleans Collection

WHAT: "Something Old, Something New: Collecting in the 21st Century," an exhibition

WHEN: July 24, 2012-February 8, 2013
Gallery Hours: Tuesdays-Saturdays, 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.; Sundays, 10:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

WHERE: The Historic New Orleans Collection, 533 Royal St., in the French Quarter

HOW: Admission is free.

WHY: Browse The Historic New Orleans Collection's most significant acquisitions since the year 2000 in its latest exhibition, "Something Old, Something New: Collecting in the 21st Century," opening Tuesday, July 24. Chosen by a team of staff curators and historians, the exhibition spans nearly 300 years and represents the diversity of The Collection's archive.

One of the most stunning pieces in the exhibition is the circa 1840 portrait "Creole in a Red Headdress." Purchased with the help of the Diana Helis Henry Fund of the Helis Foundation, this work of art defies ethnic, race and even gender distinctions. The exhibition also features a portrait of early statesman Thomas Bolling Robertson, which Antiques and Fine Arts Magazine named as one of the nation's top 20 museum acquisitions of 2011.

"Something Old, Something New" includes photographs, metalwork, pottery, letters, journals and early copies of jazz records and sheet music, and it will be on view through February 8, 2013. 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 www.hnoc.org or call (504) 523-4662.
