‘Water, Grain, Beer’
From Saturday through May 29 at the Main Library, 219 Loyola Ave., the New Orleans Public Library’s African-American Resource Center is hosting an exhibit titled “Sustaining Life: Water, Grain, Beer.”
The exhibit is curated by two groups from Southern University of New Orleans, the master’s in museum studies program and the Center for African and African-American Studies.
The exhibit consists of 12 ceramic vessels that were created for storing or consuming water, grain or beer. An opening reception will be held from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday on the second floor of the Main Library.
