Presidents' Day honors currency stalwarts George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, but it's also a good day to think about American traditions — like, say, protesting in the face of obvious injustice. In that spirit, The Front hosts a "Not My President's Day" party responding to the contentious political climate.

That evening, the gallery and the Bad Hombres and Nasty Women Performance Network host improvisational performances, puppetry, political art and more at a gathering where artists and participants can discuss activism and protest. The event is a local version of the political engagement seen at galleries large and small nationwide, such as the Museum of Modern Art's pointed display of artists' works from countries affected by President Donald Trump's immigration ban.

The party is scheduled from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Feb. 20. Costumes are encouraged and admission is free.

It's February, that month in which we typically celebrate Mardi Gras and the lesser, more saccharine occasion known as Valentine's Day. If you need a refuge from the parade route — or a date-night idea to impress that cute librarian — here are five literary events to check out this month.

The image depicts Art Neville, George Porter Jr., Joseph "Zigaboo" Modeliste and Leo Nocentelli in front of a curtain decorated with what look like French Quarter buildings. Pavy also created the image of the Neville Brothers used in the 1997 Jazz Fest poster and the Jerry Lee Lewis poster in 2007.

Tulane's Newcomb Art Museum has asked for signs from Saturday's Women's March in New Orleans to be considered for its archive. Beginning Tuesday, Jan. 24, participants may drop signs at the museum's front desk with their names and contact information written on the back.

In a call for submissions on the museum's Facebook page, it said "what you said was important and will be important for our future."

Some media organizations are estimating the Jan. 21 demonstrations were the largest single-day protest in U.S. history.

COURTESY UNITED STATES HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL MUSEUM
  • COURTESY UNITED STATES HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL MUSEUM

In an appearance this past weekend, top Trump aide Kellyanne Conway suggested this presidential administration may rely on "alternative facts" — a doublespeak-tinted term that was roundly ridiculed, but one that bodes ill for students of propaganda and disinformation.

Perhaps just in time for this perplexing, "alternative fact"-littered landscape, a visiting exhibit at the National World War II Museum explores examples of propaganda during World War II. "State of Deception: The Power of Nazi Propaganda" is a traveling version of permanent modules created by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. It opens in New Orleans Jan. 27.
