THNOC celebrates Louisiana on the silver screen with a new exhibition

WHO: The Historic New Orleans Collection

WHAT:  "From Cameo to Close-up: Louisiana in Film," an exhibition

WHEN: On view April 9-Nov. 26, 2014 • gallery hours: Tuesday-Saturday, 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.                  

WHERE: THNOC's Williams Research Center, 410 Chartres St.,
New Orleans, La.

HOW:   Admission is free. More information: http://www.hnoc.org/ or (504) 523-4662

WHY:  The Historic New Orleans Collection will celebrate Louisiana's role on the silver screen with "From Cameo to Close-up: Louisiana in Film." The free exhibition features posters, lobby cards, photographs, press books and other ephemera from the silent era to the mid-1990s. All of the items, which cover classic films and lesser-known works, are from THNOC's permanent holdings.

     Louisiana's climate and picturesque scenery have attracted the attention of filmmakers for nearly a century. Film treatments-particularly adaptations of works by noted writers such as Tennessee Williams, William Faulkner and Anne Rice-have played an important role in shaping national and international perceptions of our region and have helped fuel the rapid growth of the Louisiana tourism economy in the second half of the 20th century.

   Thanks largely to tax incentives passed by the state legislature in 2002, the film industry has emerged as a significant economic engine for Louisiana. Inspired by the dynamic nature of the industry, THNOC has initiated an energetic collecting effort centered on Louisiana and film. Two major acquisitions-the Don Lee Keith New Orleans in Film Collection, acquired in 2011, and the New Orleans and Louisiana Film Collection, acquired in 2012-form the core of THNOC's film holdings.

  "From Cameo to Close-up" will be on view April 9-Nov. 26, 2014, at the Williams Research Center, 410 Chartres St. Admission is free, and gallery hours are Tuesday-Saturday, 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Visit http://www.hnoc.org/ or call (504) 523-4662 for more information.                             

Editor's Note: Images pertaining to this exhibition and the related programming are available to members of the media. Submit requests to Anne Robichaux at anner@hnoc.org or (504) 598-7137.

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.
