LOYNOOA: Loyola University and Opera in New Orleans
Special Collections & Archives presents our poster exhibit, LOYNOOA: Loyola University and Opera in New Orleans, located on the first floor of Monroe Library facing the library’s music collection. Using photos and information from the Loyola University Archives, student worker and vocal performance major Gloria Cosenza researched the relationship between the New Orleans Opera Association and Loyola’s opera education programs in conjunction with our 3rd floor exhibit featuring highlights from the New Orleans Opera Association archive. She assembled a timeline of instructors, alumni and notable events, which was translated into posters by SCA project assistant Sara White. Gloria is photographed here hanging some of the posters before vinyl decals were added to illustrate the three eras depicted in the timeline. If you are unable to see the exhibit in person, you may now view many of the posters individually on SCA’s Tumblr.
