Development of a temporary exhibition, associated satellite exhibitions, and a series of public programs exploring the cultural significance of the Acadiana tradition of brown cotton textile production.

The Hilliard Museum will present an exhibition on Acadian brown cotton utilizing an interdisciplinary approach to better understand the historical significance and cultural impact of the 250+-year-old Acadian brown cotton textile tradition, unique to the southwestern region of Louisiana known as Acadiana. The Hilliard will employ interpretive text, soundscapes, video, photography, archival documentation and a wide variety of textiles to highlight the exhibition’s primary themes of how traditions persist and are transmitted, as well as geography’s influence on culture. The exhibition will also produce new research on community mapping, genealogy, and the tradition’s origins in early modern France. This is a community-focused project; more than a dozen satellite venues in rural areas around Acadiana will concurrently mount small, pop-up style exhibitions of brown cotton textiles and tools from their permanent collections.
