BATON ROUGE, La (press release) – To commemorate the opening of the LSU Museum of Art in the Shaw Center for the Arts fifteen years ago, we present this special exhibition celebrating art collecting in Baton Rouge. Through the loan of extraordinary works from nine private collections, we celebrate the creative spirit that binds artists to collectors and collections to institutions. Living with Art features a wide selection of media, periods, and styles, ranging from German Expressionists to Southern self-taught artists; French Impressionism and international artists to Louisiana artists; and from painting to porcelain to bronzes and photography.
Living with Art: Selections from Baton Rouge Collections is curated by LSU MOA Executive Director Daniel Stetson and will be on view March 5 through September 27, 2020.
