Evangeline: Evolution of an Icon
May 15, 2021
From the pen of a poet who never stepped foot in Louisiana to a symbol of the Acadian identity, the heroine Evangeline has endured into the twenty first century in many forms. The West Baton Rouge Museum’s exhibition Evangeline: Evolution of an Icon explores the evolution of Longfellow’s maiden in Louisiana culture and her influence on other artists over the past two hundred years, including Francois Gaudet, Rémi Belliveau, Melissa Bonin, and George Rodrigue. westbatonrougemuseum.com.
