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, RĂ©mi Belliveau, Melissa Bonin, and George Rodrigue. westbatonrougemuseum.com.
