Conversation: Living and Working along the Mississippi River

The Historic New Orleans Collection
Getting there
533 Royal St, New Orleans, LA

For centuries, inhabitants have sought to shape, control, and harness the Mississippi River. THNOC’s current publication and exhibition, "Enigmatic Stream: Industrial Landscapes of the Lower Mississippi River," which closes Sunday, April 5, challenges audiences to confront the paradoxes that occur when nature, industry, and communities overlap and entangle. Join us as photographer Richard Sexton, author Paul Schneider, and THNOC’s John Lawrence discuss historical perceptions of the river and reflections on how we live, work, and experience it today.
