April 26, 2014

Rise Up and Follow: An Experiential Journey Presented by West Baton Rouge Museum, LSU Museum of Art and the Atchafalaya National Heritage Area Commission

Experience a journey that begins in the plantation south at the West Baton Rouge Museum and ends with a celebration of the art of the Harlem Renaissance at the LSU Museum of Art.

The tour begins at the West Baton Rouge Museum, exploring the history which lead up to the Great Migration movement of African Americans from the Southern United States to cities in the North. Participants will see and hear soulful stories that span from slavery to civil rights. They will visit mid-19th and early 20th century plantation dwellings, a mercantile store and mule barn to walk in the footsteps of those who faced the decision to stay or to rise up and go north to face the unknown.

Then the group of visitors will cross the bridge to visit the LSU MOA to enjoy a catered box lunch and tour "The Visual Blues," an exhibit featuring art from the Harlem Renaissance period. The exhibition examines the replanting of Creole and Southern traditions in northern cities including the important influence of Blues and Jazz on the visual arts of this time period and beyond.

The tour begins at West Baton Rouge Museum at 9 a.m. and concludes at LSU MOA at 3 p.m.

Transportation provided from WBRM to LSUMOA. Advanced paid registration required, fee per person $20, includes entrance fees, lunch and transportation.
