DiverseWorks will present Nick Vaughan and Jake Margolin’s "50 States: Louisiana," a new, large-scale multimedia art exhibition that unearths a 1720s history of a homosexual couple involved in the burgeoning indigo trade in colonial Louisiana. The work uniquely connects this tale to a series of gay Mardi Gras Balls that were held at the New Orleans Longshoremen’s Union Hall in the 1970s. Through video, sculpture, and sound, the artists will envelop audiences in a 300-year span of queer life along the Mississippi.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until April 18.
