Community programs

The LSU Museum of Art creates meaningful experiences in our larger Baton Rouge community through programs that make a difference in the lives of children, youth and families. Our programs inspire creativity, foster positive peer relationships, and harness the power of art as a tool for self-expression.

Neighborhood Arts Project

In 2012, the LSU Museum of Art developed the Neighborhood Arts Project, or NAP, a free art outreach program for under-resourced areas with a high density of children, youth and families, who do not attend summer camps or participate in afterschool or weekend programs.

Line 4 Line

Line 4 Line, a community outreach program of LSU Museum of Art’s Neighborhood Arts Project, began in December 2014 as an innovative partnership between the museum and Baton Rouge barber O’Neil Curtis. To date, the program has served over 160 boys, fostering and strengthening literacy, creating positive attitudes towards books, providing relatable role models and getting great free books into the hands of children.
