Witness to Change:

Community Conversations on Coastal Impacts is an adult reading and discussion program incorporating history, memoir, and fiction. Sessions are intended to spark dialogue around issues and themes supported by the texts, including but not limited to:

Participants will engage in discussions led by scholar facilitators - our scholars are Elizabeth Beard, PhD and Mary Treuting, PhD from LSUA - who encourage critical thinking about the subjects discussed.

We'll meet once per book. Dates are below:

Community Art Projects

Our quarterly Community Art Projects are free for the public, and feature a themed art project for everyone. Painting, luminaries, bead art, and more. There is no charge for participation.

Renegade Museum Tours

The Renegade Museum Tours are our latest creation for AMoA AfterHours. Think of it as a museum tour for people who don't really like museums...or at least think they don't! If you know someone like that, tell them that you've found the perfect chance for them to see if they truly do not like museums. This series of tours will feature local guest tour guides who know how to entertain. Guests will experience the Museum like they never thought the could. Give it a's free!
