LSU Libraries will present “An Unnatural Metropolis: Wresting New Orleans from Nature,” an exhibition based on the
award-winning book by Craig E. Colten. The exhibition opens on Monday, Feb. 5, and runs through June 2, in
Hill Memorial Library on LSU's campus.
The catastrophic flooding accompanying hurricanes Katrina and Rita is only the latest episode in the ongoing struggle
between the Crescent City and nature. “An Unnatural Metropolis” outlines the history of this battle between people and
place, illustrating the many obstacles faced by founders and citizens during more than two centuries. The exhibition
documents yellow fever epidemics, flooding, drainage, sewage and sanitation issues that have challenged New Orleanians
since 1718. The exhibition also explores the 20th century push to “reclaim” lands from the surrounding swamp for
commercial and residential use, which proved to be a major factor in the magnitude of destruction suffered by New
Orleans in 2005.
The exhibition is free and is open to the public. The library is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m.
to 1 p.m. on Saturdays. When classes are in session, the library is also open Tuesday evenings until 8 p.m. For more
information, visit the Special Collections Web site at
www.lib.lsu.edu/special. A reception and talk by Colten will take place on Sunday,
March 18, at 3 p.m. in the lecture hall in Hill Memorial Library.
