Postcards from the Edge: Mardi Gras Culture and Costume From the Old World to the New World
Become immersed in the colorful histories of festivals, specifically, carnival and Mardi Gras. In this workshop, rare and exquisite visuals, multi-media, first-hand accounts, and documentaries will inspire discussion and insight into research materials available, along with strategies for researching festivals and relevant topics. Collections specific to carnival are held within many New Orlean memory institutions, and The Louisiana State Museum is notable for its collections on Mardi Gras. The workshop will be lead by two historians and a local Mardi Gras artist who will discuss festival culture, highlight core research materials, and share rare resources from the LSM collections.

Because the old and new traditions of festivals are deeply performative and multi-disciplinary, the workshop will be of interest to researchers of art history, craft, performance, music, costume, design, theater and dance, cultural history. The rich history of Carnival and Mardi Gras in New Orleans from when it first started in 1703, and its origins of the old world traditions - costumes, masks and role playing - will be artfully revealed through a look into the archives and collections that preserve this culture and how it has manifested into new world traditions with Mardi Gras parades, music, and masquerades. The local artist, a Mardi Gras Indian, will discuss the practice of one of the most vibrant carnival traditions in New Orleans.

Location: Louisiana State Museum, 751 Chartres St, New Orleans, LA 70116

Walking Tour: Three Squares/Three Cultures

Guide: John P. Klingman, Favrot Professor of Architecture, Tulane University

The tour focuses on three urban spaces in New Orleans: Jackson Square, Congo Square and Lafayette Square, the significant buildings in their environs and their contributions to New Orleans’s architectural and cultural history. Each of these spaces is of profound historical importance to the city. Although they are of identical size, each arose from and has contributed to, a completely distinct historic culture.

We will begin with a walk from the hotel to Lafayette Square, the seat of government in the American Sector from the mid nineteenth to the mid twentieth century. Anchored by James Gallier’s City Hall, a building that now bears his name, the square is surrounded by building of institutional importance, the Fifth Circuit US Court of Appeals and several other buildings of the US federal government. Also of note are the Lafayette Hotel and recent office and mixed use buildings. From there we will pass by other nearby CBD places and buildings of significance, the remains of South Rampart St., the recent 930 Poydras residential building, and the Civic Center complex including City Hall and the New Orleans Public Library.

The second urban public space of focus is Congo Square. Crossing Canal St. on Rampart we will see the rejuvenated theatres at the intersection, most notably the Saenger. Along North Rampart we will note the juxtaposition of the Modernist parking structure and its neoclassical neighbor, the New Orleans Athletic Club. A block away, we will pass Bienville Basin, the transformation of the last midtwentieth century housing project, Iberville. Crossing Rampart, we will enter Congo Square, a place of seminal importance to the history and development of African American music and culture. We will discuss the transformation of Congo Square over time and its current condition being subsumed within Louis Armstrong Park.

Crossing from the Treme side of Rampart into the Vieux Carre, we engage our third place of focus, Jackson Square. On the way we will proceed riverward on Dumaine St. stopping at Madame John’s Legacy, one of the oldest residential buildings in the quarter, now open to the public by the Historic New Orleans Collection. We will enter the Square and discuss its vast prospect enfronting the Mississippi River. We’ll assess the cultural significance of the Cabildo, the Presbytere and St Louis Cathedral (20), from the original French settlement of the eighteenth century. We will also consider the role of the Pontalba buildings (22) in the urban, cultural and architectural contexts. A stroll up Chartres St. to the historic Napoleon House (23) completes the tour.

Please note that this tour requires a substantial amount of walking. For those preferring a more leisurely tour, The Vieux Carre tour is recommended.

Tour participants should meet on the first level across from the bank of elevators, in front of the Spirits bar. Please be early, as tours will leave on time. Look for the tour leader’s purple Mardi Gras hat.

ArLiSNAP Career Development Workshop
Organized by the Art Library Students and New ARLIS Professionals (ArLiSNAP) Division, this Career Development Workshop will provide meaningful discussions for students and new professionals looking to break into the field of art librarianship. The half-day workshop will consist of three parts: a session on creating a vision statement and how it relates to career mapping, an open forum with professionals on the other side of the hiring process, and a resume review workshop.

In the first part of the workshop, one of our organizers will discuss workshops she conducted with studio art students in creating concise and thoughtful artist’s statements and how the objectives from these workshops can be applied to librarians. If librarians, particularly early-career librarians, were asked to develop a statement articulating the vision and blueprint for our careers, would we be able to successfully do so? How do organizational culture and library trends affect how librarians develop this “vision?” Or, possibly deter librarians from pursuing their passions in the name of career advancement? Participants will get hands-on experience in creating their own statements and discussing the impact of these statements with groups of peers.

The second part of the workshop will consist of an open forum discussion where students and new professionals are invited to ask questions to our panel of professionals who can give an inside look into the hiring process.

The panelists are:
• Kristina Keogh, Director of Library Services at Ringling College of Art and Design
• Kim Loconto, Assistant Archivist at Brooklyn Museum
• Heather Slania, Director of Decker Library at Maryland Institute College of Art

Our panelists, each with various hiring experiences under their belt, represent academia, museums, and search committees offering a unique chance for participants to ask questions about the job search process from those who have been on the other side of the table.
Our workshop will conclude with a hands-on resume review. Participants are invited to bring copies of their resumes and will be given the opportunity to gain feedback from our panelists as well as from fellow peers. By the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be better equipped with tools and information to help inform their job search processes and mapping out their future careers.

Folded Book Forms
In this workshop, librarians will be introduced to creative and innovative book structures using that most wondrous of humble materials, paper, and basic tools. Inspired by innovators in the book arts field such as Claire van Vliet and Hedi Kyle, the focus will be on form and structure rather than content. Each student will produce a collection of sample books that can be used as reference and inspiration for further projects. The structures we will explore include the Blizzard/Crown Book, Reverse Hinge Binding, Woven Accordion and, time allowing, variations on the Turkish Map Fold. Pre-cut materials and tools will be provided by the instructor. No previous experience required.

This workshop will be the catalyst for the year-long mentoring program, pairing emerging and established leaders in the art library community and providing them with the tools to support and carry out a successful mentoring relationship. The four-hour workshop is loosely modeled on the 2005 ARLIS/NA Mentoring Program workshop led by Margaret Law, associate director of the University of Alberta Learning Services. Mentoring subcommittee members will lead the workshop. Prior to the workshop, there will be pre-work that includes an introduction to mentoring; characteristics of mentors, mentees, and the mentoring relationship; realistic goal-setting; appropriate behavior and expectations; methods of communication; and benefits and potential pitfalls of mentoring. The presentation will continue building on these topics through PowerPoint, discussion, group-work, and working in your mentoring pairs.

Separate application process required.

Engaging Library Users in Collection Development
Collection development is often an exercise in anticipating user interests, but it can also be an active collaboration between librarians and library users through consultation, special projects, or a patron driven acquisitions process. The speakers in this session will present case studies demonstrating different ways librarians can work directly with library users to shape collections. Anne Trenholme will describe how the Ingalls Library at the Cleveland Museum of Art successfully petitioned for grant funding for working with new curatorial staff to ensure that the library supports their research interests. Caroline Dechert will present on how the library and curatorial staff work together to grow the artist files collection in the Bartlett Library at the Museum of International Folk Art. Deborah K. Ultan will explain how the zine collection at the Architecture and Landscape Architecture Library at the University of Minnesota offers a variety of opportunities for user engagement with the library. John Burns will detail his methods for working with faculty in the art department to collaborate on building the monographs collection in the Dixie State University Library. Expanding on the idea of working with faculty in a department, Laurel Bliss will explain how she worked with a new faculty member at San Diego State University to focus on developing the library’s collection of materials on a specific subject, in this case jewelry and metalworking. Finally, Jennifer H. Krivickas will outline how patron driven acquisitions is part of collaborative collection development in the Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning Library at the University of Cincinnati.

Tour: Tulane Special Collections: The Louisiana Research Collection, Hogan Jazz Archive & Southeastern Architectural Archive

With Kevin Williams, SEAA archivist, Leon Miller, Head, LaRC, and Bruce Raeburn, Head of Tulane Special Collections and Curator of the Hogan Jazz Archive

This tour will give attendees a chance to get to know three of Tulane University’s most exciting special collections. Site visits to each collection with time to view the exhibition space at the Southeastern Architectural Archive at the end.

The Louisiana Research Collection (LaRC) is one of the older, larger, and more comprehensive research centers for New Orleans and possibly the second largest for Louisiana as a whole after Hill Memorial Library at Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge. As an integrated research library and archives, LaRC offers a full range of library and archival research resources, from books and manuscripts to maps and images. The LaRC supports almost every aspect of Louisiana research, but among our special strengths are art, business, Carnival, the Civil War, environmental studies, Jewish studies, LGBTQ studies, Louisiana politics, medicine, social welfare, literature, urban studies, and women's studies.

The Hogan Jazz Archive is the leading research center for the study of New Orleans jazz and related musical genres, including New Orleans ragtime, gospel, blues, rhythm and blues, and Creole songs. Among its holdings are 2,000 reels of oral history interviews with musicians, family members, and observers that document the stories surrounding the emergence of jazz in New Orleans from the late 19th century forward. Other holdings include sound recordings, film, photography, sheet music, personal papers, records of the American Federation of Musicians local 174-496, ephemera, and realia.

The Southeastern Architectural Archive, a unit of Tulane University Libraries' Special Collections Division, is the largest repository of architectural records in the southern United States. Established in 1980, the SEAA has progressively sought to enhance the preservation and conservation of architectural records associated with the built environment of the southeastern Gulf Region (Alabama, Florida, Louisiana & Mississippi). The SEAA is now regularly consulted by over 1700 researchers per year. Specialized research collections include historic fire insurance atlases, city directories, building trade catalogs and the records of architects and firms from 1819 to the 1980s. The SEAA also houses the Garden Library of the New Orleans Town Gardeners.

Tour participants should meet on the first level across from the bank of elevators, in front of the Spirits bar. Please be early, as tours will leave on time. Look for the tour leader’s purple Mardi Gras hat.

OCLC Research Library Partnership Shared Print Discussion

Staff from OCLC Research Library Partnership Institutions and any other interested parties are invited to discuss current questions/challenges/strategies/successes in the realm of offsite storage and shared print management.  Topics to be considered include: 

  • whether the issue centers more on monographs or journals, or equally on both (and what about auction catalogs?)
  • what impact user preferences for having direct access to the original print versions of images might have on shared print strategies for art museum libraries and art research centers
  • how art museum library and art research center needs regarding shared print coincide and contrast with other types of institutions, such as academic libraries, health sciences or law libraries, and state or national libraries
  • how shared print management strategies relate to and inform digitization strategies

Placemaking and Urban Renewal: Art for Change
This lightning panel session will address the concept of placemaking and the role art librarians have taken in the urban revitalization of public spaces Placemaking is a people-centered, multi-faceted approach to planning, designing, and managing public spaces to fit the needs and aspirations of the communities who work, live, and play in these spaces. Panelists will discuss innovative projects which have acted as a catalyst for urban regeneration. Whether grassroots or institutionally-based, panelists will address artistic communities’ intervention in urban spaces, how these artistic communities are initiated, maintained, promoted and disseminated, and collaborative initiatives with external constituents. Through the panel presentations and subsequent roundtable discussion, the ARLISN/A membership is invited to a larger discussion of the role art librarians and visual resources professionals play in the process of urban revitalization. This panel was organized by the Urban & Regional Planning Special Interest Group.

Getting Started with Web Archiving
As galleries, museums, artists, and scholars increasingly engage each other and the world through various online media, art libraries are compelled to steward valuable born-digital records into cohesive, preservable collections. Web archiving--the process of collecting, preserving, and enabling access to web materials--presents a powerful opportunity for art libraries to develop collections of these otherwise ephemeral resources. To realize this potential, the most difficult stage is often simply getting started; the daunting range of possible collecting scopes, policies, technologies, and workflows can stop a web archiving program before it starts.

Attendees to this 2-hour workshop will overcome this obstacle by carefully reviewing options and precedents, drafting short, sample action plan and policy language, and by test-driving the available technologies with Sumitra Duncan and Karl-Rainer Blumenthal, moderators of ARLIS/NA’s Web Archiving SIG. They will come away with succinct implementation plans that specifically articulate their respective institutions’ areas of need; policies towards collecting, rights, and preservation; and itemized budget for web archiving.

Teaching Fair Use to Arts Researchers
The Code of Best Practices for Fair Use in the Visual Arts is a key guiding document detailing the legal and ethical use of images in the visual arts for creative and scholarly purposes. Drawing from the Code, this workshop will equip librarians and art information professionals with tools and strategies to teach fair use practices. The workshop will give attendees an understanding of fair use issues, when and how fair use can be integrated into library instruction, and how to address the legal questions surrounding image use while maintaining the line between reference/instruction and legal advice.

Participants will be encouraged to share their experiences with fair use, as well as preview and workshop the resources that will comprise the ARLIS/NA Fair Use Instructional Materials project. These resources will focus on hands-on active learning, and may include example presentations, interactive exercises, group activities, example worksheets, among other possibilities. This workshop will ultimately enable art information professionals to provide fair use guidance and instruction at their own institutions.

Le Bibliothécaire Solo: Success in the Diverse World of Solo Art Librarianship

The world of solo librarianship is perhaps the most diverse subset of librarianship yet at the same time often overlooked. In 2015, the Solo Art Librarians Special Interest Group was resurrected because ARLIS/NA members expressed a need for more professional support and conference content geared towards solo librarianship. In one short year the SIG has attracted close to 100 members. This 90-minute panel of lightening round presentations will scale-down topics for solo librarians. Topics range from job training to strategic planning and everything in between—totally encompassing the diversity of solo librarianship. Further, presenters represent many different types of institutions: academic, museums, public and private, but are inclusive to solo librarianship. These lightening talks will help any art librarian that wears many hats achieve success without adequate personnel support or bottomless budgets.

 

Barbara Opar, Librarian for Architecture, Syracuse University Libraries

The Embedded Librarian- Engagement is Key

The successful embedded librarian must be truly engaged in both the discipline and the department(s) served. But what does “embedded mean? It is different at different institutions. I will briefly address what embedded means in terms of my role as Architecture Librarian at Syracuse where I am a solo librarian overseeing a reserve book unit, providing reference help, and developing the collection for both the ARR and the Libraries in general. Events like the student book club and our Materials Focus sessions are key to showing engagement. So what are the benefits for all parties in terms of being embedded? Is there a down side? This brief overview of my role at Syracuse will include thoughts about the pluses- mostly- and a few negatives.

Advocacy for the Solo Librarian

For most libraries, advocacy is important. Art libraries are typically not cost-centers or direct drivers of revenue for our institutions. Because of this, effective advocacy can be the thing that keeps us alive in times of trouble. Being a self-advocate or encouraging others to be advocates for our libraries and/or staff positions can be challenging and require some of us to act outside of personal comfort zones. This brief presentation will address several advocacy strategies that have had positive effects on a medium-sized museum library with a solo librarian.

 

Jasmine Burns – Indiana University Bloomington – burnsjas@indiana.edu

Advocating for Branch Libraries

This presentation approaches the topic of Advocating for Branch Libraries through a discussion of the ways in which a solo librarian can transform their patrons, departments, and communities into advocates for their library. Examples will be given of how these goals can ultimately be reached through the creation of a variety of outreach initiatives (in departments, through the larger library system, and campus-wide), their implementation, and the measurement of their impact.

Space Planning as a Solo Librarian

Anna Elam, Librarian/Educator for the Ann P. Wyckoff Teacher Resource Center at the Seattle Art Museum, will share tips and tricks for solo librarians to track their current space situations and plan for a move into a space that already exists. The session audience will walk away with real world examples and lessons from the trenches of a current library move.

Creative IT Partnerships for the Solo Librarian

IT solutions – library systems, digital asset management systems, and their kin - are typically built to be efficient and affordable at scale. How can a solo librarian with little or no dedicated IT support or budget keep up? This presentation takes a swift look at two cases where a combination of open source software and an open mind about unusual partnerships created opportunities. Case 1: Two solo librarians team up to form a mini-consortium, sharing a hosted open source Koha ILS. Case 2: By agreeing to act a test case, a solo librarian gets her own implementation of an open source software digital asset management system.

Solo Strategic Planning

How can you be sure you are making the best decisions for your institution? When there are no colleagues to discuss pros and cons with or bounce ideas off, making major strategic plans can be paralyzing. This presentation will outline some approaches to strategic planning solo, and offer methods to ensure you can have confidence in the success of your library.

 

Jessica Shaykett – American Craft Council – jshaykett@craftcouncil.org

Professional Development for Solo Professionals

Taking advantage of professional development opportunities can help alleviate the sense of isolation that accompanies working as a solo librarian. However, support and funding for conference and workshop attendance within a small organization can often be difficult to come by. Jessica Shaykett, librarian at the American Craft Council, will discuss the challenges solo staff face when it comes to professional development, as well as share tips for garnering institutional support.

Leadership for the Solo Librarian: How to Grow When there is Nowhere Up to Go

A scaled-down version of Harvard’s Leadership Institute for Academic Librarians that applies concepts for solo librarians. How does a solo librarian increase their leadership and management capacity when there is nowhere up to go? The expectations of library leaders are changing and solo librarians need to remain competitive. This lightening talk will provide tools to assess leadership strengths and weaknesses and highlight examples of implementation for librarians without the luxury of a support staff.

 

 Gabriella Karl-Johnson, Architecture Librarian, School of Architecture, Princeton University gjk@princeton.edu

Job Training for the Solo Librarian

As a librarian entering a solo position, it can be difficult to know where to begin. How do you learn to do what you do, when you’re the only one doing it? If documentation is minimal, as can be the case at many institutions, reliance on internal and external colleagues can be essential for success. This talk will present real-world examples of techniques for developing job knowledge, including strategies for knowledge gathering from supervisors, support staff, and colleagues in similar roles.

Tour: Amistad Research Center

With Christopher Harter, Director of Library and Reference Services

The Amistad Research Center was established by the United Church Boards of Homeland Ministries at Fisk University in 1966 to house the historical records of the American Missionary Association. In 1969 Amistad became an independent non-profit organization, and the following year, it relocated to Dillard University in New Orleans. By the early 1980s, Amistad moved to the United States Mint building in the French Quarter. In 1986, Amistad sought a permanent home, and through the efforts of a coalition in New Orleans, found its permanent location on the campus of Tulane University, where the Center has resided since 1987.

 From its beginnings as the first archives documenting the modern civil rights movement, Amistad has experienced considerable expansion and its mission continues to evolve. The history of slavery, race relations, African American community development, and the civil rights movement have received new and thought-provoking interpretations as the result of scholarly and community research using Amistad's resources. The holdings include the papers of artists, educators, authors, business leaders, clergy, lawyers, factory workers, farmers and musicians.

This tour will focus on holdings from the Center’s fine arts collection as well as the personal papers of artists in the collection.

Tour participants should meet on the first level across from the bank of elevators, in front of the Spirits bar. Please be early, as tours will leave on time. Look for the tour leader’s purple Mardi Gras hat.

Tour: Newcomb Archive and Museum

With Chloe Raub, Head of Archives and Special Collections

The Newcomb Archives and Vorhoff Library Special Collections collect, preserve, and make available records that document the history of women and gender in the Gulf South. In addition, they maintain a non-circulating special collection library devoted to women's education, prescriptive literature, culinary history, Newcomb College authors, third wave feminist zines, and other topics. The Newcomb Art Museum builds on the Newcomb College legacy of education, social enterprise, and artistic experience. The Museum presents inspiring exhibitions and programs that engage communities both on and off campus, fostering the creative exchange of ideas and cross-disciplinary collaborations around innovative art.

Chloe Raub, Head of Archives and Special Collections, will offer a brief tour and will talk about the content and historical context of selected library and archival materials. Attendees will also be welcome to visit the Museum's current exhibition.

Music Plenary: Pulse Points and Backbeats
Louisiana is home to a vibrant and dizzying variety of deep-rooted musical genres, each with a distinctive pulse and culture: from zydeco, Cajun, gospel, rhythm & blues, soul, and country to rockabilly, roots rock, funk, hip hop, bounce, Mardi Gras Indian, and an entire spectrum of jazz—traditional to avant-garde, contemporary to brass-band parades and funerals. All of these streams flow into and out of New Orleans, this city at the culmination of a mighty cultural river. This afternoon’s plenary celebrates the unique musical mix that is New Orleans by showcasing some of the institutional and independent initiatives that sustain, document, and celebrate these distinctive musical cultures and the musicians who bring them to life.

The historians on our panel—all musicians themselves—are actively engaged in promoting and curating these traditions for the public, yet always attuned to fresh new musical expressions and directions. We look forward to introducing you all to the deep and varied rhythms that emanate from the Crescent City, as a special segue to this evening’s welcome reception at the New Orleans Museum of Art.

Digitization and preservation: Small Easy and Built Environment Resource Directory (BERD)
Every year at the ARLIS/NA conference, those of us who work at small museum libraries with one or two staff members are inspired by the large scale projects of our big sisters. How can we translate this inspiration to action with small means and little staff? Over the past year the Menil Collection has embarked on small scale digitization and access projects that are budget neutral, but provide access to information and resources generated by our museum that were previously only found in our archives. Through repackaging born digital gallery guides and ephemera to capturing and cataloguing finding aids and foundation documents we are beginning to make our entire exhibition history available globally for the first time. Using our own library catalogue and shared resources such as OCLC Discovery and the Getty Research Portal, digital surrogates of our important ephemeral publications are now part of the scholarly record. We have developed workflows that integrate this work into our schedule seamlessly. This has not only made valuable information more accessible, but also helped raise the library’s profile within the broader digital initiatives of our museum. It is our hope that our work will be helpful not only to scholars and researchers who will now have access to our content, but also as a model for our colleagues in smaller institutions who wish to make their own museum’s ephemera more widely available and help them overcome the intimidation that sometime accompanies such endeavors when we do not have large staffs and deep pockets.uilt Environment Resource Directory of the Washington, DC Metro Area (BERD) is an innovative “open” reference publication that embodies best practices of open scholarship. This new electronic monographic edition is current and efficient in design and content retrieval, has enhanced interactivity, and is universally available. It is geared to architects, historians, librarians, preservationists, planners and real estate developers. Discovery can be made inside the directory itself, but also through search engines. The directory is accessed not only via a web-browser but also via a mobile website. A further enhancement is the use of a mapping plug-in to provide geographic visualization and orientation. By design, this research project utilized principles of the "open research cycle." This paper will articulate what the open research cycle is and how BERD meets open scholarship criteria as defined by the Association of Research Libraries. It will demonstrate how the many opportunities for editorial and project management decisions in producing a publication like BERD can be focused on reaching the goal of a sustainable open resource. We will cover the following topics: data management plans for preservation and sharing data, public domain content, metadata (Dublin Core, VRA Core), name authorities (LC, Getty Thesaurus of Artists Name), open source platforms and plug-ins that create open functionalities, open access, Creative Commons Licensing, crowdsourcing for peer review and discovery enhancement, self-archiving in institutional repositories, and google analytics.

How to Develop a Comic Book and Graphic Novel Collection
This panel will weave together four projects in graphic novel and comic book collection development that provide insight on issues of acquiring, processing, accessing, and archiving these collections. Penny Baker’s paper concentrates on the Clark Art Institute's acquisition of photographer, filmmaker and theorist Allan Sekula’s collection of political comics and graphic novels. Baker will describe the processing of the collection and its possible impact on the future direction of the Clark Art Institute’s collection development policies while covering issues centering on discovery and access. As comics creators increasingly publish their work online through blogs, social media sites, and through online only webcomics, libraries are challenged to acquire this material that can enrich and inform extant print collections. Megan Halsband will discuss the two webcomics collections at the Library of Congress, outlining some of the successes and challenges, as well as posing some questions about collaborative collecting. With over 40 years of experience in Latin American Studies, Peter Stern’s paper will cover collecting Latin American graphic novels at the University of Massachusetts. Marianne R. Williams’ paper will give an overview of her experience creating a collection development policy for graphic novels for the Hart House Library at the University of Toronto, and will include suggestions and tips on where to start collecting and acquiring comic books for your library. We hope to share our experiences and insights working with comic books and graphic novels to inspire others to either begin similar collections within their own library or share relevant resources in acquiring and processing these materials.

Visual Literacy for All! - Instruction in the Self-directed Digital Era
Sponsored by Lousiana State University

Easy access to images on the internet means students are using finding and making use of them more than ever, which begs the following questions: Do they fully understand what and why they’re using these images? Are they finding the images they want? Do students care about visual literacy when so much is instantly available to find, copy and paste? In this panel of librarians and LIS faculty, research into the use of images, visual literacy pedagogy and successful examples of visual literacy instruction will be discussed, including the tools and plans used for three different exercises. A varied demographic range of students will be covered: undergraduate, graduate, studio and non-art majors alike. Interviews and surveys with students who have used images in their academic work or participated in visual literacy instruction, or with the faculty who work with these students, have been compiled by each presenter, providing qualitative data regarding the need for, and success of, visual literacy instruction for various academic groups.

Collaborations that Re-envision Library Management, Service, and Space: Two Perspectives on Some Trending Shifts in Libraries
This panel will cover a range of new challenges in art and academic libraries today as management and the services we provide are collapsed, expanded, and re-imagined in a multitude of ways. We are all finding ways to reinvent our libraries and keep them relevant, whether those changes come from within the organization or are result of a grant or a mandate from the outside. In a time of dwindling resources for many institutions, libraries need to adapt to ever-changing trends in higher education.   

Rachel Resnik will discuss her library’s recent transition from a traditional director-led library to a team-managed organization with a rotating chair at the helm. She will explain the impetus for the change, how the library is adapting, and will attempt to identify the challenges she foresees encountering as they move forward.

Rachel Beckwith will talk about the progress of the Hampshire College Library’s mellon grant to develop a knowledge commons.   Their goal is to bring together service partners, such as the Writing Center, Transformative Speaking Center, and Student Support and Advising, within the integrated space of the Harold F. Johnson Library in order to make the student experience more seamless and to discover different connections and intersections that new adjacencies afford.

Hacks and Innovative Approaches to Cataloging Non-Roman Script Materials
At many institutions the challenge of identifying and acquiring material from under-represented and previously inaccessible regions has been superseded by the challenge of cataloging it properly and promptly. Our panel session will have two speakers addressing this topic: Jared Ash, Assistant Museum Librarian for Slavic and Special Collections (Thomas J. Watson Library), will discuss recent initiatives adopted by Watson, and share innovative tips and free online resources to enable even the most language- and staff-limited libraries to begin making their way through non-Roman script backlogs. He will discuss the Watson’s success in using Metadata Maker, an open access record generator, and in engaging volunteers, work-study students and interns in cataloging Asian and Slavic language material. He also will share time-saving techniques including: using transliteration engines and macros; importing MARC records from national library catalogs and other resources beyond WorldCat; and identifying books with no Roman characters or ISBN's through reverse image searching. Christina Peter, Head of Acquisitions (Frick Art Reference Library), will introduce the updated version of the Slavic Cataloging Manual. The implementation of RDA necessitated a complete review of this tool, essential for catalogers of Slavic and Eastern European language materials. In 2014 the Slavic and Eastern European Section of ACRL formed a Task Force to review the SCM. 22 librarians with a variety of language and subject expertise volunteered for the project led by Larisa Walsh (University of Chicago). By the time the Task Force finished its work in March 2016, 145 chapters, new and revised, had been uploaded to the manual. Ms. Peter oversaw the work of the Authority Control Group, which revised 49 chapters. The manual may serve as a practical model for other language- or script-specific cataloging websites, hopefully breaking down the impediments to describing and making these materials accessible to all.

  • Use the handle #arlisSIGs or #arlisLGBTQ to follow the conversation on Twitter

III. Speakers:

1.  Frank Perez and Chloe Raub from the LGBT+ Archives

The LGBT+ Archives Project of Louisiana is a community organization whose purpose is to:

  • Educate the community on the importance of ensuring that LGBT+ historical materials are archived and made available for future generations to access, research, & study.
  • Promote the proper maintenance and preservation of historical LGBT+ materials.
  • Provide an information directory of archival resources where LGBT+ historical materials may be deposited or accessed for research and study.
  • Index, publish, and maintain a current list of locations of archived historical LGBT+ materials.
  • Develop financial resources to assist in the preservation and availability of certain LGBT+ collections.

The Archive is unique because it not a repository and since its founding has helped to place several collections with local repositories, including the Stewart Butler papers and Alan Robinson papers with the Louisiana Research Collection, and the Opal Masters Carnival collection with the Louisiana State Museum.

 

2. Leon Miller from the Tulane LGBT

Leon C. Miller (Lee) is head of the Louisiana Research Collection at Tulane University (LaRC). Lee is a past president and past regent of the Academy of Certified Archivists, a past council member and a Fellow of the Society of American Archivists, a past president of the Society of Southwest Archivists, and a past president of the Greater New Orleans Archivists. He has received Distinguished Service Awards from all four organizations and has received two awards for historical writing. He has spoken nationally on a range of topics with a special emphasis on ethics, intellectual freedom, mentoring, and outreach. He is a founding member of the LGBT+ Archives Project of Louisiana.

LaRC’s first acquisition was in 1889. Since then it has acquired almost four linear miles of books, maps, ephemera, and archives about Louisiana, including the papers of Louisiana Governors, Members of Congress, Mayors of the City of New Orleans, Civil War generals, southern writers, the records of women’s organizations, LGBTQ organizations, church records, and much, much more. LaRC also preserves one of the finest nineteenth-century Louisiana libraries extant, an excellent map collection, and the largest collection of pre-WWII original Carnival float and costume designs.

LaRC has a special mission to preserve the LGBTQ heritage of New Orleans. It has been collecting flyers, menus, invitations, sample ballots, newsletters, membership forms, Carnival designs, and other LGBTQ materials for more than thirty years. Among its more prominent LGBTQ holdings are the papers of Civil Rights activists Stewart Butler, Skip Ward, Rich Magill, Glenn Ducote, Alan Robinson, LGBT Carnival leader Mickey Gil, and more. LaRC also serves as the official archives of the LGBT Community Center of New Orleans, the Knights d’Orleans, and other LGBTQ organizations.

Membership Lunch with Guest Speaker, Kim Vaz-Deville, PhD
Kim Vaz-Deville, Ph.D. is a professor of education and the associate dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at Xavier University of Louisiana.  Her area of research centers on the use of expressive arts as a response to large group social trauma with attention to women, gender, and insurgency.

Dr. Vaz-Deville’s book, The ‘Baby Dolls’: Breaking the Race and Gender Barriers of the New Orleans Mardi Gras Tradition (LSU Press, 2013), tells the story of an organization of African American women, the Baby Dolls, formed around 1912 and their crucial contribution to Louisiana’s cultural history.  She traces the Baby Dolls’ origins from Storyville brothels and dance halls to their re-emergence in post-Katrina New Orleans and uncovers the fascinating history of the “raddy-walking, shake-dancing, cigar-smoking, money-flinging” ladies who strutted their way into the predominantly male establishment of the Mardi Gras parades.   This book was chosen by the Young Leadership Council (YLC) members and book-loving New Orleanians as the "One Book One New Orleans" title for 2016!

Impacts of Working with Linked Data
Linked open data (LOD) is a huge trend in libraries, archives, and museums, but what does it actually take to accomplish an LOD project? And, now that we’ve made LOD, how can it be consumed? Moreover, what effects does it have on your institutional capacity and teamwork? This panel will address the realities of choosing or developing appropriate tools, presenting RDF data to users, and creating documentation. It will also discuss the larger impacts of LOD projects on institutional infrastructure. Alexandra Provo and Lukas Klic will outline the final phase of the Villa I Tatti project, Florentine Drawings: A Linked Catalogue for the Semantic Web. Cory Lampert will discuss an experimental interface that queries University of Las Vegas linked open data. Emilee Mathews and Kelly Spring will present the concrete effects of collaboration between catalogers, archivists, IT specialists, and subject librarians on piloting linked open data for artists’ books at the University of California, Irvine.

Making Collections Accessible: Legal Tools for the 21st Century
Three leading IP lawyers will present tools and strategies for addressing the intellectual property, privacy and contract rights associated with works. They will address best practices, copyright duration, fair use, 108, moral rights, and systems that can be scaled up from one work to thousands of works. They will also discuss collections that have been opened for specific uses and the growing presence of older collections that have been digitized and now populate the Web. The audience will come away with a firm strategy and understanding of what legal issues may or may not arise in any given collection, and how to assess the legal issues when they do arise. This information will lower the barrier in making library and archival collections more open to all. Kenneth Crews is a leading authority in addressing copyright as it relates to the needs of universities, colleges, libraries, museums, publishers and other cultural organizations He is trained as a librarian and a lawyer, and has advised nearly everyone in the world on copyright issues. Greg Cram focuses his time on solving the copyright issues at the New York Public Library and has been a huge voice in DPLA. Elizabeth Townsend Gard has invented the Durationator, a global copyright tool to determine not only the term of a work, but other issues including library exceptions, termination of transfer, moral rights, and other issues that arise in determining whether a work is still under copyright or in the public domain. Deborah Kempe will serve as moderator. This session will be recorded and made accessible after the conference in the ARLIS/NA Learning Portal.

Temporary and Transitional: The Evolution of Art Library Spaces
The renovation and building of art library spaces involves a number of moving parts as librarians consider how to preserve services and access to collections both throughout the process and following project completion. This session, sponsored by the Space Planning Special Interest Group, will feature three speakers (each offering 15-20 minute presentations) who will address challenges faced and lessons learned from their experiences of renovating, reorganizing, and restructuring art library spaces. Presenters will focus on services offered during times of change and transformation as art library spaces are renovated or moved to new locations. Topics of discussion by presenters will include the provision of temporary space services as pop-up libraries within the studio environment, the delivery and continuation of multiple services during a renovation, and the process of permanently closing down a branch academic art library and opening a new dedicated art collections space within the main university library. In considering the theme of this year’s conference, this session will emphasize the collaborative nature of space planning as librarians and others work to support users’ research and educational needs across different environments and organizational cultures.

Walking Tour: The Vieux Carré (French Quarter)

Guide: John P. Klingman, Favrot Professor of Architecture, Tulane University

This tour explores New Orleans’s original city, the famed Vieux Carre, founded in 1718. Learn how the 1721 city plan reflected the unique site and environment, and see how this synergy has evolved over almost two centuries. Learn to recognize the influences of France, Spain, Africa, and the West Indies in the unique architecture and building typologies of creole cottage, creole townhouse, and the later shotgun. Along the way, we will note the range of designs for the signature elements of New Orleans architecture, and discuss critical preservation issues: the changing socioeconomic status of the neighborhood over time, and the documentation and supervision of French Quarter buildings. Finally, we will consider twenty-first century stresses upon this national treasure, highlighting current successes and challenges.

Our end-point is the historic Napoleon House on Chartres Street—a dining opportunity.

Tour participants should meet on the first level across from the bank of elevators, in front of the Spirits bar. Please be early, as tours will leave on time. Look for the tour leader’s purple Mardi Gras hat.

Immediately following the "Making Collections Accessible: Legal Tools for the 21st Century” session  http://sched.co/8jgK,  Dr. Elizabeth Townsend Gard of Tulane and several of her law students will be on hand to demo the Durationator [website: http://www.durationator.com/], which provides for any work the copyright status, Section 108(h), non-transformative fair use, and other legal information.  The Tulane team also has  offered to produce Durationator reports for those who want to bring records of books, art, photographs, periodicals, or archival materials in their collections.  For the last two years, the Team is currently working on identifying key legal  issues arising in art-focused works, and would love feedback on their research and results so far.

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.

Sponsored by Duke University Libraries

Shira Loev Eller, Art & Design Librarian and Rachel Pollack, Instructor of Writing (The George Washington University): Navigating Museum, Library, and Scholarly Discourse: A Librarian/Professor Instruction Partnership

Eva Sclippa, Art Librarian and Coordinator of Instruction and Dr. Kate Dimitrova, Professor of Art History (Alfred University): Artists in the Classroom: Creative Processes in Art History Information Literacy Classes

Lyndsay Bratton, Digital Scholarship and Visual Resources Librarian (Connecticut College): Digital Humanities Assignments for Undergraduates: A Case Study in Architectural Studies

In teaching information literacy, collaborations between librarians and professors allow for more intentional learning and more successful approaches to pedagogical challenges. This session explores three collaborative endeavors: introducing undergraduate students to digital humanities research methods; integrating art historical research and artistic practice for studio art students; and helping students navigate the conceptual spaces where art historical research converges—the museum, the library, and scholarly discourse. Professor Rachel Pollack and Librarian Shira Loev Eller discuss their partnership in teaching University Writing, a required critical writing course for first year students. In Pollack’s course, the professor guides the class through analyzing Dutch paintings at the National Gallery of Art, while the librarian instructs them in information literacy. The presenters will describe their process of collaboration in guiding undergraduates through museum and library “spaces” so that students can successfully engage with the scholarly conversation around an artwork. Teaching art history information literacy to studio art students presents unique challenges—how can librarians and professors clearly demonstrate the connection between the skills needed to research their subjects and the physical act of artistic creation? This collaboration between librarian Eva Sclippa and art history professor Kate Dimitrova brings new tools to the challenge. Attendees will learn about ways in which students in our classes expand their research skills through assignments and projects that also engage their creative faculties. Collaboration is essential to digital humanities (DH) work, from the individual project to sustaining a center or program. Librarian Lyndsay Bratton partnered with Professor Emily Morash to pilot a DH assignment in which student teams scanned volumes of an unindexed journal and developed digital projects that make the resource more accessible for undergraduate research. This case study considers challenges in introducing undergraduates to DH research, and offers recommendations for how best to implement digital humanities assignments in the classroom.

Scope Drift: New Directions in Visual Resources
In project management, “scope creep” describes the continuous expansion of the requirements, mission, and objectives of a project. Although often perceived as a negative, in the fields of art librarianship and visual resources the drifting of professional scope can be both a force driving innovation and an indicator of change. Following up on the successful session on this topic sponsored by the Visual Resources Division (VRD) at the 2016 ARLIS/NA+VRA conference, this panel will present case studies illuminating how visual resources duties are expanding and shifting in digital contexts. In alignment with the topics of interests proposed for the 2017 conference, presentations will address one or more of the following areas: Digital Humanities/Digital Art History Collection Development and Management User Experience Digitization and Preservation of Digital Collections Scholarly Communications, Hannah Marshall will speak about the theory and practice of digital curation as it relates to digital cultural heritage and the expanding role of the 'digital curator', Marian Lambers will discuss case studies from the College of Creative Studies, and Katherina Fostano will present on her visual resource center's responses to changing faculty needs. Panelists will discuss the challenges of addressing new demands from organizations and users, as well as the opportunities for broadening collaborations.

Diversity Forum

The Diversity Forum will be a safe space for ARLIS/NA members and other conference attendees to discuss issues of concern and how we can work together to develop concrete steps to uphold our diversity and inclusion values.

Diversity and inclusion are one of ARLIS/NA’s core values, articulated as follows: “Diversity and inclusion in all aspects of the profession strengthens the practice of art librarianship, and enriches library collections and user experiences.”  Diversity and inclusion are also embedded in ARLIS/NA’s strategic directions: “The Society shall promote diversity and inclusion within the profession including the makeup of its workforce, the design of services and programming, the development of intercultural fluency skills and competencies, and the practice of inclusive collections building.”

Since the Diversity Forum will take place from 12:00pm-1:00pm, attendees are encouraged to bring their lunch or a snack. Grab-and-go meals are conveniently available on the hotel's second level at the River Blends Cafe (2nd Level, Main Building) and Marketplace (2nd Level, Riverside Building). For more information, please see the complete list of hotel dining options here.

Critical Information Literacy in Art and Design Libraries
The concept of critical information literacy is now a decade old and has gleaned a substantive body of library literature. But librarians still often struggle with making the social justice concepts key to critical information literacy “sticky” for art and design students who often question the relevance of research skills to their practice. On the heels of conversations about the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy, this session will serve as a discussion of standards for visual literacy, including where it intersects with critical librarianship. Stephanie Grimm, Research and Instruction Librarian, Savannah College of Art and Design will present a model for a series of anti-stereotype visual research workshops that consider the existing visual literacy standards through the lens of critical librarianship and feminist pedagogy. Though initially developed for comic artists and illustrators, the workshop has grown to include strategies and activities that can be adapted for visual artists in general. Maryland Institute College of Art’s Siân Evans, Instruction Librarian, and Jennifer Ferretti, Digital Initiatives Librarian, will address two main aspects of their new critical information literacy program: engaged instruction and topical research guides. Specifically, they will discuss a “Beyoncé-based” library instruction session geared towards first year art and design students who had limited research experience. With themes such as current events and popular culture at the center, instruction and online tools help to engage students with information resources and research methodologies to help understand their work and their environment.


This session will be recorded and made accessible after the conference in the ARLIS/NA Learning Portal.

Does the Walker Choose the Path, or the Path the Walker: International Perspectives on Art Librarianship
Co-sponsored by the International Relations and Professional Development Committees, this session explores how individuals in different parts of the world establish and develop careers in art librarianship. What are the core competencies, standard curricula, and career development venues in various countries? Where do our practices coincide, how do they differ, and what can we learn from each other? Are there critical competencies—new or traditional—that our library schools and professional organizations are failing to cultivate? And what are the opportunities for international cross-pollination such as cross-border internships or job exchanges? An international panel will offer a range of perspectives on issues such as these.

Leaving the Good Old Days Behind: Data-Driven Research Going Forward
William Blueher will discuss the development of a digital humanities tool that allows users to engage with the entire corpus of Metropolitan Museum of Art publications in a novel way. It provides users with a new and intuitive access point to this large set of data, producing a whole new way of accessing this material. Most remarkably of all, this tool was built in just over a semester by a single graduate assistant working one day a week (in consultation with two professional librarians), and this talk will focus both on how libraries can begin developing DH tools without large allocations of staff time and how the development of these tools can serve a pedagogic purpose as we help train emerging library professionals.

Sarah Seymore will discuss the impact of recently released datasets from museums like the MOMA, Tate Collection, and other cultural heritage institutions that have prompted interest in exploring what art historical data has to offer. With the results of her survey on art historical data usage (http://goo.gl/forms/Uc3bEsMitR0w81af1), she will analyze how art historians and others are using this data and what is being done with datasets related to art history. This talk will describe the results of the survey and further implications of those results, as well as examine the current state of open art historical datasets.

New Voices in the Profession
Returning for its eleventh year, New Voices in the Profession provides professionals new to art librarianship the opportunity to present topics from exceptional coursework, such as a master's thesis, or topics with which they are engaged early in their professional life. New professionals are defined as either students in MLIS or Master's programs leading to a career in art librarianship, or those within five years of Master's level study. For many, this is their first professional speaking engagement. This panel began at the ARLIS/NA 2006 Annual Conference in Banff and has since received wide attention and praise. Topics presented reveal new ideas as well as different ways of thinking about established concepts. Speakers give the conference attendees a glimpse of academic interests and current discourses of the newest ARLIS/NA members. The New Voices session is organized by the Professional Development Committee, ArLiSNAP, the Gerd Muehsam Award Committee, and the Sotheby's Institute of Art Research Award Committee.

Convocation with Keynote Speaker, Terrance Osborne

The artist Terrance Osborne is this year’s Convocation keynote speaker. Oborne was born and raised in New Orleans and his artwork reflects the colorful, diverse, vibrant, and culturally-rich nature of the city. He attended the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (NOCCA) and later graduated with a BFA from Xavier University. After several years teaching art at the Alice S. Harte Elementary School in Algiers, Osborne decided to dedicate his time completely to his artistic practice. In addition to his own artwork, Osborne has created commissions for the Zulu Social Aid & Pleasure Club and the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. His Jazz Fest posters have included the Rebirth Brass Band (2007), Uncle Lionel Batiste (2010), Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews (2012), and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band (2014). All have been popular hits with Jazz Fest audiences, with the Rebirth and Trombone Shorty posters becoming best-sellers. Osborne is a recipient of the honorary “Forty under Forty Award” for his teaching and artistic contributions to New Orleans. Conference attendees can view Osborne’s artwork up close and in person at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside’s parking garage where his “New Orleans Sunset” mural graces the façade.

Tour: Backstreet Cultural Museum

The Backstreet Cultural Museum officially opened its doors in 1999. However, its origins can be traced back three decades to when Sylvester Francis paraded with the Gentlemen of Leisure Social Aid & Pleasure Club.  A man photographing the parade wanted Francis to pay $35.00 for his own photograph. To avoid such costs in the future, Francis bought both a Super 8 mm camera and a still camera and began documenting Carnival celebrations, second-line parades,  and jazz funerals throughout New Orleans. 

Today, the Backstreet Cultural Museum holds the world’s most comprehensive collection related to New Orleans’ African American community-based masking and processional traditions, including Mardi Gras Indians, jazz funerals, social aid and pleasure clubs, Baby Dolls, and Skull and Bone gangs. The museum’s filmed records of over 500 events constitute the most cohesive archive documenting these cultural traditions.  In addition to its permanent exhibits, the Backstreet Cultural Museum hosts public performances of music and dance, provides outreach programs, and creates an annual book, Keeping Jazz Funerals Alive, that chronicles the year’s jazz funerals.

The Backstreet Cultural Museum is a pillar in the Tremé community where second-line parades begin and end, the North Side Skull and Bone Gang and Mardi Gras Indians congregate on Mardi Gras day, and schoolchildren identify family members in the photographs on the wall. The museum is active in Tremé and promotes art and culture as important to the neighborhood’s identity and future.

Walking Tour: The Vieux Carré (French Quarter)

Guide: John P. Klingman, Favrot Professor of Architecture, Tulane University

This tour explores New Orleans’s original city, the famed Vieux Carre, founded in 1718. Learn how the 1721 city plan reflected the unique site and environment, and see how this synergy has evolved over almost two centuries. Learn to recognize the influences of France, Spain, Africa, and the West Indies in the unique architecture and building typologies of creole cottage, creole townhouse, and the later shotgun. Along the way, we will note the range of designs for the signature elements of New Orleans architecture, and discuss critical preservation issues: the changing socioeconomic status of the neighborhood over time, and the documentation and supervision of French Quarter buildings. Finally, we will consider twenty-first century stresses upon this national treasure, highlighting current successes and challenges.

Our end-point is the historic Napoleon House on Chartres Street—a dining opportunity.

Tour: Joan Mitchell Center

With Gia Hamilton, Director of the JMC and Laura Morris, archivist at the Joan Mitchell Foundation

Join us on a tour of the Joan Mitchell Center, an artists' residency program established by the Joan Mitchell Foundation. Based in the culturally diverse and historic city of New Orleans, the Joan Mitchell Center’s mission is to support local, national, and international contemporary visual artists.

The Joan Mitchell Center is an artist residency center developed to offer both time and space for artists to create work in a contemplative environment. In addition to the Artist-in-Residence Program, the Center curates and produces public programming that serves the broader community of New Orleans, and endeavors to serve as an incubator, conduit and resource for partnerships in the arts.

The tour will be led by Gia Hamilton (Director of the Joan Mitchell Center) and Laura Morris (Archivist at the Joan Mitchell Foundation, New York), who will share about the Center as well as the Foundation's current research and exhibition projects in support of Joan Mitchell's legacy.

Walking Tour: Garden District

WALKING TOUR with John P. Klingman, Favrot Professor of Architecture, Tulane University

The Garden District is sometimes described as the First American Suburb. The nineteenth century layout of the neighborhood matches the block dimensions and the overall size of the Vieux Carre but with only a third of the number of properties per block. This creates a verdant landscape of houses set in gardens, completely distinct from the feel of the French Quarter.

This walking tour begins on St Charles Avenue, at a stop of the historic St. Charles Avenue streetcar line. The tour will focus upon the wonderful residential architecture and horticultural landscape dramatically visible along the tree-lined sidewalks. We will see many of the oldest and grandest homes that are concentrated in the lower blocks of the neighborhood.

At the midpoint of the District, Washington Avenue and Magazine Street provide glimpses of the vibrant commercial activity that also characterizes the area. We will then explore the historic location of Newcomb College and the resulting midcentury modern houses that arose following Newcomb’s departure for a new campus farther uptown. We will then see some of the more modest houses in the neighborhood that also exhibit rich architectural character.

The conclusion of the tour will be spent in a visit to the characteristic Lafayette Cemetery #1 in the center of the Garden District. The tombs date from the long history of the neighborhood, and the architectural detail is varied and extensive. Even one of the walls of the cemetery houses tombs, another indication of the unique character of the local environment.

Meet at the corner of First Street and St. Charles Avenue. Fifteen-minute cab ride, or catch the St. Charles streetcare at Poydras & St. Charles Avenue (45 minutes walk/ride).

Tour: Music Box New Orleans

With DJ Rusty Lazer

The Music Box is a place where play, imagination, experimentation, collaboration, community and tons of hard work come together as artist-made, interactive “musical houses.” They can be cacophonously played by the public, or harmoniously performed by professional musicians. The Music Box is an internationally celebrated and locally loved public art project, inspired by the unique musical and architectural culture of our home city of New Orleans.

The project pushes artistic boundaries, but more importantly it brings together people of all stripes for a heartwarming, creative experience that has equal appeal for a musical giant such as Thurston Moore or a gaggle of 5 year olds. 

The project is the evolving brainchild of our nonprofit arts organization New Orleans Airlift. Begun in 2011 by local artists Delaney Martin, Taylor Shepherd, Jay Pennington and visiting artist Swoon, the project has grown mightily through the hard work and idiosyncratic vision of hundreds more collaborators, in a series of national and international locations.

Now, we’re giving the Music Box a permanent home: The Music Box Village. After building and tearing down two previous temporary versions, it has been our long-held dream to install our musical houses in a place where we can continue to elaborate on and improve the project.

Tour participants should meet on the first level across from the bank of elevators, in front of the Spirits bar. Please be early, as tours will leave on time. Look for the tour leader’s purple Mardi Gras hat.

An excursion into the Big Easy's legacy of print media, the Print History Tour, encompasses an insight-packed walking tour of New Orleans’ prize historical archive—the city itself. Hitting the streets in a brisk 90-minute walk through the New Orleans Central Business District and French Quarter, guests will learn about the untold and unexpected history of New Orleans as the South’s original hub for print. Points on the tour will highlight the industry-leading newspapers and presses along with renegade printers that created the material culture of New Orleans in the late 19th & 20th centuries. (Don't forget to wear comfortable shoes for this traverse across the cobblestoned centuries!)
