Louisiana is full of culture, not least of which is the varied French hiertage throughout the state. This exhibition will highlight artists from each of the three French speaking cultures of Louisiana, including 29th September Competition juror Francis Pavy. The AMoA collection includes work by artists with French heritage, as well as a few French artists. As the French connection has been strong through Louisiana's history, this influence has continued through to contemporary art.

Using traditional film photography, On Ancient Wings: The Sandhill Cranes of North America presents 38 color photographs from the award-winning book by internationally known conservation photographer Michael Forsberg. Whooping cranes, the species found in Louisiana, were added to the endangered species list in 1967. This led to the development of an experimental population at the White Lake Wetlands Conservation Area in 2011. This exhibition serves to highlight the cranes as well as the work to preserve this species in Louisiana and other locations throughout the country.
