Upcoming Exhibits

Artists of West Baton Rouge (January 18 – March 22, 2020)


Inspired by the recent announcement of Port Allen’s designation as a Cultural District, our first exhibit of 2020 will spotlight the Artists of West Baton Rouge. Our parish is home to many talented artisans and we are excited to share their work with our visitors. We are seeking artists who are from, or who currently live in West Baton Rouge, to submit artwork for the exhibit. If you are interested or know of an artist who should be featured, you can access a submission sheet here. Note that to successfully submit your piece, the submission sheet and a photo of the work is required--NOT the artwork itself. If you have any questions about submitting your piece, please contact Curator of Collections, Elizabeth Brantley at 225-336-2422 ext 206 or elizabeth@wbrmuseum.org. Artwork should be submitted for consideration to our curatorial team by December 6, 2019.

Frida Kahlo's Garden (April 4 - May 24, 2020)

Frida Kahlo is considered one of the most significant artists of the twentieth century. Her body of work, consisting of some 250 paintings and drawings, is at once intensely personal and universal in scope, and relies heavily on the natural world. The exhibition Frida Kahlo's Garden transports visitors to Kahlo's garden to experience her world as she did. Frida Kahlo's Garden opens at the West Baton Rouge Museum on April 4, 2020.
