A documentary that explores ways that New Orleans artists chronicled the city and its residents in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina will help raise money for victims of recent historic flooding in south Louisiana.

Filmmaker Robert Adanto's "City of Memory" will be screened at 6 p.m. on Aug. 31 at the Paul and Lulu Hilliard University Art Museum on the University of Louisiana at Lafayette campus. It's part of the museum's fall season of Wednesday night programs now underway.

There will be a suggested donation of $10 to raise money to assist flood relief efforts.

 "Every donation received will go to a relief fund administered by the Community Foundation of Acadiana, although attendees who are unable to donate are certainly welcome," said Jolie Johnson, the museum's marketing and membership manager.

"City of Memory," like many of the Wednesday night programs, will complement a University Art Museum exhibit. The work of several artists who are featured in the film will be included in a group exhibit, "Face to Face: A Survey of Contemporary Portraiture by Louisiana Artists." It will open at 6 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 9, at the museum.

The museum has scheduled a range of free programs on most Wednesday nights through November, between 5-8 p.m., when there is no admission cost for visitors. Events will include exhibits, tours, artist talks, poetry readings, music performances, lectures, and panel discussions.

University Art Museum features 11,000 square feet of gallery space and is the largest exhibition space between Houston and New Orleans. It houses a collection of 18th- through 21st-century European, Asian and American art. In addition to its permanent collection, it offers changing exhibitions of regional, national and international art.

The museum is at 710 E. St. Mary Blvd. 

Museum hours are: Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Wednesdays, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.; and Saturdays: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The museum is closed Sundays and Mondays. 

Admission to the University Art Museum is $5 for adults, $4 for anyone over age 62, $3 for students between the ages of 5 and 17, and free for children younger than 5 years old. UL Lafayette students, and faculty and staff members can visit the museum for free by showing their University ID cards.
