Cultural Vistas magazine comes of age

Louisiana Cultural Vistas, the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities award-winning quarterly magazine, is 21 years old -- old enough, if it were a person, to drink a brew or two. But since it’s not, LEH Editor-in-chief Michael Sartisky and Editor David Johnson want you to party with them instead.

With support provided by Abita Brewery and Zapp’s Chips, the LEH editorial staff invites the public to join them at a publication party for their Summer 2012 Cultural Vistas issue on Wednesday, July 25, at 6 p.m. at the Louisiana Humanities Center, 938 Lafayette St., on the corner of O’Keefe in New Orleans’ Central Business District.

Stop by on your way home from work and listen as Sartisky and Johnson interview contributors Jerry Brock, whose piece on Mahalia Jackson is the issue’s cover story, and artist Ayo Scott, whose painting of Jackson is the cover art. John Magill of the Historic New Orleans Collection will also be there to talk about his article on Claiborne Avenue.
