This evening at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art (925 Camp St.) - Collecting 101: A Conversation with Collectors: Sydney Besthoff, Jill Dupre, Josh Mayer and Will Erickson.  How does one become an art collector?  This panel will give a first-hand account how these four collectors started, and how their collections grew and changed (and are still changing).  Questions will address the basics of collecting—such as dealing with a gallery or artist, and funding—to the more personal, such as why they collect what they do. Moderator is Jan Katz, Curator for the Museum’s Center for Southern Craft and Design...Free to Museum members; $10 general admission. or information or to reserve your spot, call 504.539.9650.

It's the Bouligny Lecture Series with Thomas E. Chavez this evening from 6:30 to 9:30 pm at the Historic New Orleans Collection (533 Royal)...the Francisco Bouligny Lecture, is an annual program examining the shared history between Spain and Louisiana.  Tonight's theme is “Following the Paper Trail: The Daily Life of a Spanish Colonial Document” with Alfred E. Lemmon, Director of the Williams Research Center at The Historic New Orleans Collection.  Tonight will explore the journey that the documents in “The Threads of Memory” would have taken through harsh frontier conditions and how they might have survived for four centuries. A fascinating history of fragile paper materials, it reveals the shipboard life that the colonists had to endure, the amazing varied landscapes that they had to travel and the perilous ocean journeys.  This lecture is FREE and open to the public.
