Hey all you lucky ones in New Orleans: Through the end of the month, you should stop into the the Marigny and see Lafcadio’s Revenge, a “mobile museum” of New Orleans’ “forgotten histories,” by Tessa Farmer, Nina Nichols and Dana Sherwood. This Prospect. 2 satellite project is an homage to homage to Lafcadio Hearn, a 19th century New Orleans journalist and  ethnographer and an inventor of the city’s mysterious history.
