The Yellow Book: Old South Baton Rouge

November 30, 2021

Part of photographer Johanna Warwick’s project documenting all 104 cities included in the 1955 government publication called The Yellow Book, which showed proposed interstate routes—this special exhibition at the Capitol Park Museum focuses on Old South Baton Rouge. Through a series of photographs that use the elevated interstate as a framework, Warwick explores how Interstates 10 and 110, built in the 1960s, divided the neighborhood in two, displacing people and businesses and rupturing its sense of community.

An opening reception will be held on November 30 from 4 pm–7 pm. louisianastatemuseum.org.

Location:
660 North 4th Street
Baton Rouge
