    - The first Bicycle Safety Festival will be held on June 4th from 9am-12pm at Parc Sans Souci in downtown Lafayette. The Bicycle Safety Festival is presented by Lafayette Consolidated Government, Bike Lafayette, and Broussard & David, LLC. There will be free adult and youth bicycle helmets for the first 300 participants, free bike registration, free safety training and instruction, and participants are eligible to win a free bicycle (valued at $300 - courtesy of Hub City Cycles). Additionally, there will be food, refreshments and musical entertainment by Zydeco Radio.

    In Acadiana, there have been far too many cyclists injured in preventable bicycle accidents. The aim of this event is to help cyclists and motorists become more knowledgeable about bicycle safety and the rules of the road. As Lafayette embraces more bicycle lanes and smarter growth, bicycle awareness is becoming even more essential.

    Broussard & David, LLC, a law firm located in downtown Lafayette, has a great deal of experience in representing people catastrophically injured in bicycle related accidents. In sponsoring this event, the partners at Broussard & David, LLC hope that -- through education and training -- the roads will be safer for bicyclists, motorists and pedestrians alike.

    THE FOLLOWING EXHIBITIONS WILL BE ON VIEW:

    Kate Clark: Mysterious Presence
    Kate Clark uses the centuries-old technique of taxidermy to sculpt humanlike facial features with wild animal hides. Her hybridized sculptures are at once familiar yet strange, insinuating primal similarities between humans and animals and evoking questions about identity and societal values. Her sculptures’ strong presence also evokes a sort of absence, rendering the figures aloof and mysterious. Often working with live models and using a polymer clay, Clark creates realistic faces for her figures and then applies sections of shaved hide to match the animal’s skin to the shape of the human face thus facilitating the inter-species transformation.

    Creole World: Photographs of New Orleans and the Latin Caribbean Sphere
    This colorful exhibit showcases nearly 50 vibrant images from renowned photographer Richard Sexton. New Orleans is known for its distinctive Creole heritage – evident in its food, architecture, and people – but it is part of an entire family of Latin Caribbean cities that forged new identities from their colonial histories. This exhibition will explore these connections, featuring the work of renowned photographer Richard Sexton. Over the course of 38 years (1975-2013), Sexton traveled across Latin America – from Haiti, Columbia, Argentina, Cuba, and Ecuador back home to New Orleans – capturing the architectural and urban similarities among these culturally rich locales.

    Depictions of Louisiana: From the Permanent Collection of the Hilliard University Art Museum
    Curated from the museum's collection, Depictions of Louisiana uses works dating from mid-Nineteenth Century to the present alongside selected texts from literature to interpret Louisiana through the artists’ expressions of individuality, belief, space and place.

    Condition Report: Preserving our Community’s Art Collection
    A behind the scenes look at the daily preservation practices at the museum that highlights the key concepts of conservation science and presents a selection of artworks typically unseen, due to their fragile condition. Among the ten pieces featured in the exhibit are an early 20th century botanical drawing by Harriet Joor, a Thomas Sully portrait from 1812, and a recently restored painting by John McCrady.


    The museum is thankful for the support and partnerships that have made this season of exhibitions possible. Richard Sexton’s Creole World photographs are from the permanent holdings of The Historic New Orleans Collection. Kate Clark: Mysterious Presence originated at the Newcomb Art Museum of Tulane, New Orleans and was curated by Monica Ramirez-Monagut, museum director.

The war arose from the division of Korea at the end of World War II and from the global tensions of the Cold War that developed immediately afterwards.

  • - The 2016 Republican National Convention will convene in Cleveland, Ohio on July 18-21, 2016. The RNC chose a 2016 convention date much earlier than in recent elections, allowing the Republican nominee to draw upon campaign cash designated to be spent only in the general election.

    Ohio has been a battleground swing-state throughout United States campaigning history. The last candidate to win the presidential election without Ohio was Democrat John F. Kennedy in 1960. The last Republican presidential candidate to win the election without Ohio was Abraham Lincoln, 100 years earlier, in 1860. Cleveland last hosted the Republican National Convention in 1936.

    The main 2016 Republican National Convention venue will be the Quicken Loans Arena. This main convention center is located in downtown Cleveland, and referred to locally as "The Q". The multipurpose arena seats 20,500, and includes 2,000 club seats and 88 luxury suites. It is home to three professional sports teams and hosts numerous entertainment events. Other supporting venues within walking distance of 2016 RNC main venue include the Cleveland Convention Center and the Renaissance Cleveland Hotel.

    Other cities that were considered to host the 2016 Republican National Convention included Cincinnati, Columbus, Denver, Kansas City, Las Vegas and Phoenix. Columbus and Phoenix were eliminated on April 2, 2014. Cincinnati and Las Vegas withdrew on May 22, 2014. On June 25, 2014, the Republican National Committee announced that the cities of Cleveland and Dallas would continue to the final round of consideration to host the 2016 Convention. The recommendation to select 'Cleveland 2016' was made following a final review by the Republicans' site selection committee on July 8, 2014.
