Event Details

The Louisiana Museum Foundation, in partnership with the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art, presents a Gallery Talk and Workshop by Exhibition Curator Cybele Gontar & Master Cabinetmaker Ruppert Kohlmaier, Jr.

From their Harmony Street studio, two generations of Kohlmaiers restored the tradition of fine bespoke furniture making in New Orleans. In the morning, Cybèle Gontar and Ruppert Kohlmaier, Jr. will explore the Kohlmaier legacy of this remarkable craftsmanship, which culminated in the exhibition and catalogue, A Century on Harmony Street: The Kohlmaier Cabinetmakers of New Orleans, currently on view at the Cabildo.

Then, learn the secrets of a master cabinetmaker in the afternoon when Ruppert will share his tips and techniques and answer questions about his incredible talent: Everything is Simple, You Just Don’t Know How.

Exhibition catalogues will be available at the lecture and workshop and online at thelmf.org.
