  1. January Historical Happy Hour

    January 20, 2023, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

    January's Historical Happy Hour will feature the musical stylings of Smokehouse Porter, Miss Mamie, and the Gutbucket Blues Band. It will also be the backdrop to the opening reception for our newest exhibit Ron’s Retro: Honoring Ronald Kennedy with Local Black Artists. On view in the Whitehead Gallery from January 19th, 2023 - March 19th, 2023. 

    Known as the King and Queen of the Gutbucket Blues, Smokehouse and Miss Mamie have been perfecting their art for many years. Their influences include musicians along the Mississippi River from Baton Rouge all the way to Chicago, and they both have an unmatched stage presence. Come on out and witness Smokehouse’s signature smoky voice and Miss Mamie’s warm tones that bring the blues to life and hold their audience captive. 

    Additionally, Ron’s Retro is a new exhibit honoring beloved friend of the museum, Ronald Kennedy. Featured at numerous SugarFests over the years, Kennedy was a Professor of Visual Arts and Photography at Southeastern University. He was also well-known by artists in the area. The focus of this exhibit will be the works of Ronald Kennedy, featuring artist from the greater Baton Rouge community. Take this chance to visit the museum after-hours, and be one of the early viewers of our newest exhibition.
