Sybil Kein Collection at the Amistad Research Center (Tulane University)

The papers of writer and musician Sybil Kein document her academic, literary and musical careers, and include correspondence, writings, publications, news clippings, periodicals, audiocassettes, compact discs, photographs and collected materials. Her papers document her interest in Louisiana Creole poetry and culture. Of note are over 300 black and white photograph prints by Leo Touchet of New Orleans parades and second lines. Kein also donated a drum, which is tentatively dated circa 1790 and is believed to have been used in New Orleans’ Congo Square, a gathering place for enslaved Africans.

Elemore Morgan, Jr., Painter

I met Elemore in 1959 while studying architecture and working for the architect Neil Nehrbass in Lafayette. He is acknowledged as the leading contemporary Louisiana landscape painter. The coastal prairie landscape of the rice growing region of southwest Louisiana with its terraced fields, towering thunderheads, solitary oaks, mills and barns is the source of his work. Morgan is known for luminous, gestural paintings which reflect the dramatic skies and vast spaces of the prairies and marshes of south Louisiana. His treatment of light and color is linked to the work of Impressionist and Fauve painters of the 19th century. Elemore Morgan, Jr. often employs shaped panels which are integral to the design and composition of his paintings.
