Capitol Park Museum presents “Art Flow 2022”
BATON ROUGE, La (press release) – Capitol Park Museum will host Art Flow 2022, a juried exhibition of two- and three-dimensional art by Louisiana artists. Organized by the Arts Council of Greater Baton Rouge, the exhibit will be on display March 10 through Saturday, April 9. It is part of a month-long spotlight on contemporary Louisiana artists.
The goal of Art Flow, an annual exhibition formerly known as Art Melt, is to promote professional artists from and throughout the state of Louisiana while providing an opportunity for the public to experience the best of local fine art. Each year, a panel of national and regional art professionals review and select works submitted by artists to put on display in downtown Baton Rouge. The public is then invited to view these works and vote for their favorites.
This year, acclaimed artists Charles Bibbs and Beth Welch juried the submissions and selected about 54 objects by more than 30 artists for inclusion. More than 170 pieces were originally submitted. Capitol Park is one of three venues where visitors can see the judges’ selections. Other artworks can be seen at the Manship Theater and the Arts Council of Greater Baton Rouge.
Winners of the juried and public prizes will be announced at the Ebb & Flow Festival held in downtown Baton Rouge April 9–10, 2022.
Located at 660 North Fourth Street in Baton Rouge, the Museum is directly across from the State Capitol building. Admission is $7 for adults and $6 for students with I.D., senior citizens (65+), and members of the military. School groups with reservations and children six and under are admitted free.
While at Capitol Park Museum, visitors can also see Yellow Book: Old South Baton Rouge, an exhibition exploring the legacy of interstate construction in the Old South Baton Rouge neighborhood, and our two permanent exhibitions: Grounds for Greatness: Louisiana and the Nation and The Louisiana Experience.
Founded in 2007, Capitol Park Museum is part of the Louisiana State Museum, a system of National Historic Landmarks and architecturally significant structures with an educational mission. The museum houses a half-million artifacts highlighting the state’s history and culture.
