Society Circle Reception

The Society Circle Reception will be held at the Historic New Orleans Collection (HNCO) http://www.hnoc.org/ in the French Quarter (410 Chartres Street).
After an extensive restoration, the HNOC’s Chartres Street location is now home to the Williams Research Center (WRC). City architect Edgar Angelo Christy designed the 1915 Beaux Arts structure, which initially functioned as a police station and municipal courthouse. Today the façade and the reading room—which occupies the former courtroom—are suggestive of the building's earlier design, although the remaining floor space has been reordered to operate as secure, climate-controlled storage.
Cocktails and light hors d’oeurves will be served.  Upon request of the HNOC, only white wine (no red or rose) will be available.
Society Circle members can tour the reading room and view the Clarence John Laughlin and His Contemporaries: A Picture and a Thousand Words exhibition.  A Louisiana native, Clarence John Laughlin (1905–1985) began his career as a photographer in the 1930s, eventually emerging as one of America’s pioneers in surrealist and experimental photography.  After the reception, you will be close to a wide variety of fabulous dinner options in the French Quarter. 

Attendance at the Society Circle Reception is by invitation only. If you would like to attend, you may donate to this year's Society Circle in your conference registration form or at the Donate Now web-page: https://www.arlisna.org/support/donate-now

Donations to the Society Circle can be targeted toward four existing funds - the Conference Speakers Fund, the Internship Fund, the Alternative Voices Speakers Fund, the Travel Grant Fund, or can be unrestricted and used wherever the need is greatest.
Transportation: The HNOC is walking distance (approximately .06 miles from the Hilton Riverside.)  Alternatively, you may take a cab or share a ride with other members.
