“Covington’s Past” – A Lecture on the History of Covington and STAA

283Among the backdrop of their Bicentennial Exhibition, join STAA this Sunday March 17th at 3:00pm, as we take a journey back to the Covington of the past. If you are new to Covington, or if you’ve lived here a while and don’t know how Covington emerged as a business center and artist colony over the past 200 years, come, listen and enjoy!  Mark Johnson, with Leadership St. Tammany, will be joined by Nikki Barranger, son of STAA Founder Miriam Barranger, who will read portions of his much talked about book “Southern Karma”. Nikki describes the book as a “hybrid work of prose” as it is about his mother and the community during her time in Covington.  Nikki will have the books for sale at the event.  In addition, well known folk songstress Roseanne Bivens will play and sing during the afternoon event making it a most pleasant Sunday afternoon! Refreshments will be served.

This event is free and open to the public. The St. Tammany Art Association is located at 320 N. Columbia St. in Downtown Covington.
