AFA STUDY TRIP 2017: NEW ORLEANS
MARCH 29 to APRIL 2, 2017

The AFA is proud to announce New Orleans, Louisiana as the destination for the 2017 Study Trip. New Orleans, a city steeped in rich cross-cultural heritage, provides an enriching study of architecture, landscape, decorative arts and the history of trade and collecting. The itinerary includes visits to key historic sites of architecture in the French Quarter, Garden District, Uptown, City Park, and beyond. Access to private residences will highlight the city’s unique, architecture and interior decoration from the past to the present. In addition, the itinerary will include curatorial tours to museums and collections including the Historic New Orleans Collection, New Orleans Museum of Art, Louisiana State Museum sites, Long Vue House and Gardens, and more. There will be a day trip to stately plantations, showcasing the cultural geography of houses along the Mississippi River. The trip is coordinated by local Attingham alumni, AFA Board members Steven Spandle and Jennifer Klos, and also local scholars, historians, curators, architects and preservationists.

Study Trips will continue the annual tradition of AFA-sponsored tours which combine curatorial expertise, private access and opportunities for meals and refreshment in the most interesting of settings. Most recently the group visited St. Louis (2015), San Antonio and Austin (2014), Richmond (2013), and Boston and the North Shore of Massachusetts (2012).
