“THE FLOOD: A Collaborative Art Gallery Exhibit” Runs Through Sept. 15 at LSU Student Union Art Gallery

09/5/2017
BATON ROUGE – The LSU Student Union Art Gallery is currently hosting “THE FLOOD: A Collaborative Art Gallery Exhibit.” The exhibit will be available until Friday, Sept. 15.

Through a variety of photographs and paintings, this collaborative exhibit allows patrons to experience one of South Louisiana’s greatest natural disasters. From flooded communities to relief efforts across the region, this exhibit is a collection of pieces from artists who lived through the wrath and recovery of The Great Flood of August 2016.

“Last year, in the midst of tragedy, we witnessed beautiful stories of communities coming together to recover. We really wanted this exhibit to celebrate that collaboration by inviting a variety of artists to create one experience,” said Margot Carroll, assistant vice president of LSU Auxiliary Services.

The exhibit showcases work from Kristin Binning (Baton Rouge, La.), Natalie Binford of LA Flood Love Non-Profit (Baton Rouge, La.), Allison Dugas Behan (New Orleans, La.), Amy Konieczka of Amy & Co (Denham Springs, La.), Lynn McMorris (French Settlement, La.), Heather Mouton (Denham Springs, La.) and two LSU students, Eli Casiano and Abigail Smithson.

Visitors have the opportunity to participate in the exhibit by sharing their stories from the flood or leave messages of hope for the affected communities in an interactive portion of the exhibit.

The exhibit is free and open to the public. The LSU Student Union Art Gallery is located on the second floor of the LSU Student Union and is open 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday-Friday.
