Ogden exhibition features photography by Tulane Faculty and Alumni

Sophie T. Lvoff
Photography Professor AnnieLaurie Erickson, and alumni Sophie Lvoff (MFA 2013) and Jonathan Traviesa (MFA 2014) have work up at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art this summer as part of "The Rising" exhibition. 

"The Rising" celebrates the renewal and re-birth of the City of New Orleans ten years after one of the worst disasters in American history, and examines how art and photography was central to the revitalization of New Orleans. Spearheaded by the Ogden Museum (the first arts institution in New Orleans to open after the storm), the New Orleans Photo Alliance (formed in 2006), and Prospect.1 (organized in 2008), a collective arts exhibition throughout the city which fostered a creative outlet that helped enable a community to recover and begin the process of healing, and attracted by the lure of what is frequently called the most unique city in America, young photographers flocked to New Orleans and infused their creativity and vision into a city already known for its incomparable culture.  >The exhibition opened May 23 and will be on view until September 20, 2015.
