BR: Grad Students & Ego Trip Shows Tonight

Start at Foster Hall on LSU's campus for a reception for the Graduate Students show from 6-8pm. See what the Grads have been up to over the summer and early in the semester.

Then head to the Backyard Gallery, 870 Violet St., for the rescheduled Ego Trip show, featuring all varieties of self-portraits. Janet's got a piece in the show, that I can only describe as a video painting and that doesn't quite work either. Can't wait to try to put it in a category on her website. The show goes from 8 til ?

Speaking of art in Baton Rouge, the Art Car parade has been postponed until March 4, 2005. Thanks to all who offered space for visiting car artists. We were able to house everyone, but due to the special Tulane vs. Southeastern game at Tiger Stadium, the police would be spread too thin to adequately cover a parade and the game, so they effectively canceled the parade. Don't be too upset, they were doing the parade for free, so I'm sure they're getting paid for the football game. The March 4 date coincides with the first anniversary of the Shaw center, so it should be a great big arty weekend downtown.

Also speaking of art in Baton Rouge, I'm going to try to start all Baton Rouge specific posts with BR in the title for those of you using rss readers from afar who aren't interested in the local stuff.
