Triumph over Tragedy is a collaborative event to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the start of the Great Depression. The Masur Museum is pleased to participate by presenting the portraits and stories of North Lousiana residents who lived through this pivotal time in our country’s history. Portraits by photographers Brad Arender, Scarlett Hendricks, and Neil Johnson will be presented along with the personal stories of their subjects.
Triumph Over Tragedy: The Great Depression & New Deal Era in North Louisiana is the inaugural collaboration of the Eye-20 Creative Corridor. The Eye-20 Creative Corridor is a unified effort of the three North Louisiana Arts Councils- Northeast Louisiana Arts Council, Shreveport Regional Arts Council, and Bossier Arts Council- to provide a long-term Cultural Economy Initiative that will unify the communities surrounding Interstate-20, ensuring access to the highest quality programs and services offered by artists and arts organizations in North Louisiana. In its first group effort, the Eye-20 Creative Corridor is engaging 200 arts organizations, 100 professional artists, and 525 eight grade students.
