Baton Rouge, La — Come celebrate art and the newest gallery exhibitions with an evening of food, fun, and friends as the LSU Museum of Art, located on the fifth floor of the Shaw Center for the Arts in downtown Baton Rouge, hosts “Magic at the Museum” on Thursday, April 19, during its third Thursday Museum after Dark. The reception begins at 6 p.m. on the fifth floor of the Shaw Center for the Arts. Admission is free and open to the public.
From the surprising artwork of Gregory Scott to the British portraits, who seem to watch your every move, art is often about illusion. Four exhibitions will be spotlighted during “Magic at the Museum” including “Faces of Pride: Elizabeth Catlett,” “Outside the Frame: Gregory Scott,” “Once Upon a Time” and “Contemporary Insights.”
The School of Art Glassell Gallery, located on the first floor will also be open for the installation of an MFA student art show. Guests are invited to visit both floors.
There will be a drawing for a baseball signed by LSU’s Mason Katz during the reception in support of the students from the Manship School of Mass Communication helping to raise student awareness of the LSU Museum of Art.
Don’t forget to tour the museum’s current exhibition, “Tearing Granite: The Sculptures of Jesús Moroles,” and the other permanent galleries.
