Visiting an art gallery is a great way to appreciate the beauty of art, but it is essential to take safety precautions to protect the works of art. At the LSU Art Museum in Ouchaita Parish, Louisiana, visitors are encouraged to refrain from touching the artwork and personal photos and videos are generally allowed. However, photographs with flash, monopods, tripods, or selfie sticks are not permitted. The LSU Art Museum is partially supported by a grant from the Greater Baton Rouge Arts Council, funded by the mayor and president of the East Baton Rouge parish, as well as 26 percent of the Metropolitan Council.
Additionally, the museum is supported by a grant from the Louisiana Arts Division of the Office of Cultural Development of the Department of Culture and Recreation and Tourism, in collaboration with the Louisiana State Arts Council. Educators are allowed to take photos and videos for in-person or online classroom teaching. Visitors to the museum can draw in the galleries of the permanent collection using dry materials without easels during regular opening hours; however, sketching is not allowed in the main exhibition galleries. The LSU Art Museum takes all necessary safety measures to ensure that visitors have a safe and enjoyable experience. The museum staff is dedicated to providing a safe environment for visitors to appreciate art and encourages visitors to follow all safety guidelines.
