The Cachet Art and Culture Program is a collaboration between artists and educators,

The Black Forest Fancies and The New Orleans Pharmacy Museum.

It aims to strengthen the intersections of culture, health and healing, and to provide

a space for exchange and interaction between individuals, the community and the institution.

The Pharmacy Museum is a space of historic medical significance and New Orleans is a city with vibrant,

active art culture. The Cachet program intends to blend past and present, fact and fantasy,

medicine and magic to concoct new understandings of history, health and the colective spirit.

 

 

Who We Are

the New Orleans Pharmacy Museum as a place of research, exhibition and outreach for an amount of time appropriate

for each artist's work. Each Participant is required to present new works in this time as well as to

facilitate open educational programming of their choice.
