The Bayou Teche Museum has unveiled a new poster created by a local photojournalist that will help fund the expansion of the New Iberia museum.

The poster features a photograph by Lee Ball of the museum and the adjacent Donald “Doc” Voorhies Wing, as well as the Sliman Theater with its newly refurbished Evangeline sign and marquee. The Evangeline sign was refurbished last year as part of the Louisiana Main Street Program, an initiative to revitalize historic buildings across the state.

According to the museum, the photo has been used to promote Louisiana in both the regional and national travel industry. The photo will now be replicated and used as a fundraiser for the expansion of the Bayou Teche Museum.

A formal unveiling of the poster, which also features work by Kate Ferry Graphic Design and Illustration, will be held at an open house at the museum on Saturday, October 17. The event is free and begins at 11 a.m. The poster will be available for $30.

Lee Ball’s 50-year photography career has covered New Iberia’s cultural and social gatherings since 1981; this photo is one of his most recent photo’s of the city’s historic district.
