"In A Unique Slant of Light: The Bicentennial History of Art in Louisiana, we've partnered with the leading institutions and scholars of Louisiana art to create a durable artifact that will benefit all citizens for years after the bicentennial," says Michael Sartisky.

"Aligning the book's entries with the cutting-edge online digital capabilities of KnowLA: The Digital Encyclopedia of Louisiana History and Culture, we've produced an innovative and lasting record of the state's artistic heritage."

In other words, you can have a print edition for $120 or access the online version. Yay.

In Shreveport on Thurs, Nov 8, a reception featuring Dr Sartisky and Neil Johnson will take place at the Meadows Museum. It is free and open to the public. Doors open at 6pm.
