Join the Hilliard Art Museum's Curator of Exhibitions Ben Hickey for a conversation with Master Spinner and Weaver Elaine Larcade Bourque as they discuss
the traditions and history of Acadian brown cotton in Louisiana. Bourque, accompanied by fellow weaver Austin Clark, will demonstrate the process and
craft of weaving brown cotton, a practice she learned from her time apprenticing under renowned weaver Gladys LeBlanc, and the two will dive more deeply
into the rich practices on view in Acadian Brown Cotton: The Fabric of Acadiana.
