Meadows Museum of Art | Meadows Museum of Art Exhibit

"Shreveport's progressiveness can be seen at a glance," according to this 100-year-old Chamber of Commerce album from the private collection of Shreveport educator Edward Chopin. This exhibition, created with the Shreveport Historic Preservation Society, will feature a selection from its more than 300 anonymous, stunning gelatin silver photographs showcasing Shreveport's businesses and labor force in 1918.

This exhibit is partially underwritten by the Attaway Professorships in Civic Culture Program and the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities. More information is available at centenary.edu/meadows.
