Louisiana Cultural Vistas

Drummer Shannon Powell pounds out the rhythm of New Orleans; President Andrew Jackson visits the city in the 19th century; and a new executive director is appointed to the Louisiana branch of the National Audubon Society.

Ana Zorilla of the LA-SPCA discusses the organizations' latest activities; a group of panelists from Louisiana Cultural Vistas profile several stories in the latest issue; and Robert Christgau reviews Ani DeFranco's latest album.

 The latest edition of Louisiana Cultural Vistas profiles a new book and digital platform focused on two hundred years of art in Louisiana.
