Baton Rouge MuralsTuesday, August 30, 2016
We were in Baton Rouge this weekend so Av could do some work and help with the flood cleanup. Please help if you can, friends -- if you're able to come in and volunteer your time, or send funds, it's all much appreciated.
Here are some images we took earlier this year of the murals downtown, part of the Museum of Public Art project.
I'll post another set of Baton Rouge murals soon.
From the Museum of Public Art:
The Museum of Public Art is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization dedicated to the creation of community inspired murals in the Old South Baton Rouge community. We believe that Public Art is a force for positive community development in ways conscious and unconscious. How the message is conveyed through imagery, text, and symbolism, effects the soul of the community…. instilling a sense of hope, and history, through creative expression which unfortunately in many inner city communities, is stymied and stifled.
