About the Event
Artists from our AcA community have been invited to submit work inspired by the motto of Lafayette Parish’s namesake, the Marquis de Lafayette, “Cur Non.” For more Information, click HERE
Emblazoned on the Marquis’ coat-of-arms, Cur Non is a Latin phrase meaning “Pourquois Pas” or “Why Not?” The Marquis considered this a personal motto and way of life. This audacious approach to life led the Marquis to global renown through both the American and French Revolutionary Wars.
AcA has invited artists to respond to the theme of “Cur Non” in order to envision what may come in the next 200 years here in Lafayette Parish and the City of Lafayette. In this phrase AcA invites artists to expand their personal practices to be as audacious as the Marquis.
