Arnaudville’s robust art scene begins at NUNU Arts and Culture Collective, a volunteer-run art gallery, artisan market, and cultural venue. The shopping bug will certainly bite you here as you wander the 5,000-square-foot former Singleton Hardware Store and its vast inventory of fine art, handmade jewelry, pottery, wood and metal work, blown glass, books, natural bath products, and a whole lot more. NUNU is a must-stop attraction for visitors seeking one-of-a-kind art and/or gifts.

For visitors looking for things to do and the opportunity to meet authentic French Louisiana locals, NUNU collective hosts a multitude of programs including exhibitions, quilting/needlework, and drumming circles, a monthly potluck dinner and dance, and French language conversational tables where “All French is Good French.” You can keep up with what’s happening at the collective here.

If traveling with a group, the Jacques Arnaud French Studies Collective, curated by Mavis Arnaud Frugé, provides French immersion workshops designed to give visitors a “mini-taste” of Louisiana French language and culture. Contact the collective for costs. Other arts and cultural workshops are available, as well.

Ici on parle français. French is spoken here.
