International Exhibition on Animals in Art
The International Exhibition on Animals in Art began in 1987. This judged and juried show is open to all media, though pieces must depict an animal (fish and insects are considered animals for the purposes of this exhibition). Any work that is determined not to meet the spirit of the exhibit will not be accepted. The 2016 show was coordinated by the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine in collaboration with the LSU School of Art.
