Arts Council of New Orleans
CETA Records, 1977-1979

During the late 1970s the Arts Council made use of funds from the federal government's Comprehensive Employment and Training Act to hire artists for a variety of projects. These records document the artists and projects, as well as ACNO's interaction with the municipal agencies responsible for monitoring CETA funds and their use.

The "Murals, K&B" file documents the battle over the creation of an outdoor mural on the Broadway wall of the K&B drugstore at the corner of St. Charles Ave. The "Photographers/Writers Project" file is one of several in the Arts Council collection that do cuments the production of two publications: Creoles of New Orleans, gens de couleur (people of color)--writings by Lyla Hay Owen with photographs by Owen Murphy and Neighbors, soul of the city--text by Andrew J. Kaslow with photographs by A ndrew J. Pickett. The "Documentation Forms" folders contain detailed records of the daily activities of the artists funded by CETA money.
