A. Hays Town and The Architectural Image of Louisiana Traveling Art Exhibit: May 27- August 5, 2019
A(lbert) Hays Town (1903-2005) is likely the most recognized and beloved of the twentieth-century Louisiana architects. Town practiced for more than 70 years and was remarkably prolific, designing educational, office, commercial, and public buildings, and hundreds of private residences. A. Hays Town and the Architectural Image of Louisiana focuses on his residential architecture, on which he concentrated after the mid 1960s. The exhibition explores the historic sources and popular success of Town’s residential designs, which created recognizable images of a shared homeland.
