Cailloux & Maistre Monument

Cailloux & Maistre Monument

This project is about building new monuments in New Orleans. Bayou Road is home to St. Rose of Lima Church, built by Father Claude Paschal Maistre—who played a critical role in the canonization of one of New Orleans’ black Civil War heroes, Andre Cailloux. Artist Langston Allston aims to make this history visible through a mural installation that engages with the Church and the community around Bayou Road. He will begin this year with compiling research done about the history into a zine that offers further insight into the story, and will help to further shape the content of the mural.
