The Acadian Memorial Foundation has been selected by the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities as a host organization for the traveling Smithsonian ExhibitionJourney Stories, scheduled for display at Maison Duchamp
May 28-July 9, 2011.
The Smithsonian Museum on Main Street program describesJourney Storiesas using “engaging images with audio and artifacts to tell the individual stories that illustrate the critical roles travel and movement have played in building our diverse American society.”
Our task is to put together relevant event programming and develop a portion of the exhibition for display here in St. Martinville: the portion which will tell the story of OUR community. Who are the people that settled and shaped this area? How and why did they come? What are the results of their settlement and contributions to the community?
Let’s join together to tell our stories through this prestigious venue!Find out more by attending the August 25thmeeting, led by project consultant Dr. Michael Martin, tenured Associate Professor of History and SLEMCO/BORSF Professor in Liberal Arts at ULL.
