LSU Museum Of Art

Portrait Hall in Lousiana

The Museum was founded in 1959 and opened in 1962 as a small period room museum. In 2005, it was moved to the Shaw Center for the Arts, where it has more than 13,000 square feet of immense exhibition space. It is the only dedicated art museum in the city of Baton Rouge and serves more than 20,000 visitors annually. The facility holds one of the largest university-affiliated art collections in the South. Additionally, the museum provides world class touring exhibitions of regional, American and European paintings, sculpture, decorative arts, works on paper, and photography. The museum's philosophy is held in the belief that personal interaction with original works of art provide meaningful links to the past and powerful points of contact with contemporary cultural concerns
