Jeanerette Museum's "In the Mind of the Maker"

WHO: Jeanerette Museum

WHAT: "In the Mind of the Maker" Documentary

WHERE: Jeanerette Museum, 500 E. Main St., Jeanerette, La.

WHEN: Tuesday, Feb. 24, 2016 at 6 p.m.


On Feb. 24 at 6 p.m. at the Jeanerette Museum, writer and filmmaker C.E. Richard, Ph. D will present his short documentary, In the Mind of the Maker, followed by a discussion of how traditional boat building in the Atchafalaya Basin can offer valuable insights into the human experience of memory, imagination and creative expression.

Because Louisiana's old time boat builders used no blue prints or plans to construct their vessels, they provide an intriguing example of the brain's extraordinary capacity for complex visualization.

For more than twenty years, Richard has written books and produced documentary films for PBS, all focused on topics related to his native French Louisiana. His latest book is a collection of personal essays about Louisiana's eroding coast, entitled Coastal Sketches: Field Notes & Photos from 'The End of the World.'

Richard is a research fellow at the Center for Louisiana Studies at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, where he was awarded the university's highest honor last year, the title of Distinguished Professor.

In the Mind of the Maker is being presented by the museum free of charge and is open to adults. Seating for the program may be limited and taken on a first come, first serve basis.
