The summer 2017 issue of Louisiana Cultural Vistas is here.
Our cover story takes us to Calcasieu Ship Channel, the intersection of a booming economy and the fight to save Louisiana’s coast. Written by Katy Reckdahl, the article is the first installment in our two-year coastal initiative, supported by a grant from the Walton Family Foundation.
The issue also includes:
- Josh Goodman on the booming commercial relationship between officials in Havana and New Orleans prior to the embargo
- Al Copeland’s quest for the perfect Popeye’s biscuit
- Ben Sandmel’s appreciation of the late songwriter David Egan
- Alison Fensterstock’s new column on the Westgate Mansion, part of the booming 1990s goth scene in New Orleans.
Watch “Factoids on Centroids,” the latest episode in our “Geographer’s Space” web series starring Richard Campanella.
We also have partner sections from the Historic New Orleans Collection, Louisiana State Museum, Ogden Museum of Southern Art, New Orleans Museum of Art, and Shreveport Regional Arts Council; plus our picks for the summer season.
