Poverty Point: A World Treasure
Posted on March 23, 2015 at 9:51 AM
Named last year as a UNESCO World Heritage Site (one of only 22 in the United States), Poverty Point is one of the world’s greatest archaeological treasures. The site is outstanding because of its widespread trade network and is the largest, most complex U.S archaeological site of its age. This educational exhibit will feature the photography of Jenny Ellerbe, the artwork of Martin Pate (on loan from the Louisiana Office of State Parks), and artifacts from the Poverty Point World Heritage Site (on loan from the Louisiana Office of State Parks and the Louisiana Division of Archaeology).
Opening Reception – Thursday, March 26, 2015. Remarks at 6 p.m. by Jenny Ellerbe and Diana Greenlee. $25 donation per person. Exhibit continues through May 22.
