Creole World opened at the Paul and Lulu Hilliard University Art Museum on the campus of University of Louisiana, Lafayette, on June 10, 2016 and will be on display until August 20, 2016. This is the fourth installation of Creole World since its premiere in 2014 at The Historic New Orleans Collection, and the third travel venue for the exhibit. This installation is notable in that the Hilliard provided French translations of the curatorial and artist statements and print titles, for the first time. The Frost Art Museum in Miami, had previously provided Spanish translations. Curator Laura Blereau conceived of and produced a checklist for the exhibit, which is also trilingual. A PDF of the English language version can be viewed here:
The checklist includes a complete inventory of all prints and artifacts exhibited. The acknowledgments include the names of all the folks at the Hilliard and ULL who contributed to this installation of Creole World. I am deeply indebted to all of them.
Downloads for all language versions of the checklist are available on dropbox here:
