Galleries galore . . .
Throughout the year, the LSU College of Art & Design hosts exhibitions of work by undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, and local and visiting artists. From contemporary paintings, prints, and photographs to ceramics, graphic design, and sculpture, students at the College of Art & Design have abundant opportunities to see and experience innovative work from a wide range of perspectives and social themes.
The LSU School of Art’s gallery spaces include the Alfred C. Glassell Jr. Exhibition Gallery, located in the Shaw Center for the Arts in downtown Baton Rouge, and Gallery 229, a photography exhibition space located in the Art Building on campus. The new gallery in the Barnes Ogden Art & Design Complex features exhibitions of work by art & design faculty, alumni, students, and visiting artists.
Students also exhibit their work in the Sculpture Quad, located between Atkinson Hall and the Barnes Ogden Art & Design Complex, which features permanent installations and temporary works by sculpture students throughout the year; in Julian T. White Hall (formerly the Design Building), where student work is showcased through displays that change regularly; and pop-up shows around all the college’s spaces.

- the LSU Museum of Art, located on the fifth floor of the Shaw Center for the Arts, comprises 13,000 square-feet distributed among 14 galleries;
- the main campus library includes a dedicated printmaking gallery space on the second floor;
