In an unprecedented collaboration, we have partnered with the Louisiana State Museum in New Orleans to present the exhibit - Satchmo: His Life in New Orleans. This exhibit tells the story of Louis Armstrong's complex relationship with his hometown to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of his first professional gig at Henry Ponce's in 1915. The exhibit opens at the Old US Mint in New Orleans on June 29, 2015 and runs through 2017. Details here!
Red Beans and Ricely Yours: Louis Armstrong & Food will examine Satchmo's love affair with cuisines from around the world through fun photographs, Lucille's recipe cards, various menus and other souvenirs, and odes to his "birthmark:" red beans and rice.
