LSU Museum of Art Offers Resources for Faculty and Staff
Looking for a change of space? Located in the heart of downtown, the LSU Museum of Art offers a variety of research and educational resources to our faculty and staff, including lecture and event space and free educational programs. The art museum is also a great way for LSU staff to escape and unwind after a long day in the office.
“We want students, faculty and staff to know that we’re located just a few minutes from campus and that we’re here to be a resource for the community and the university,” said said Brandi Simmons, communications coordinator for the Museum of Art.
Most recently the museum hosted a college faculty and staff retreat in their lobby. And, on Thursday, October 13, the museum invites all faculty and staff to its ‘Atomic to Cosmic: Science in Painting Enlightenment’ panel discussion. The lecture will feature several LSU faculty members including: astrophysicist Geoffrey Clayton, quantum physicist A. Ravi P. Rau, evolutionary biologist Dominique Homberger and Buddhist studies professor and guest curator Paula Arai. To learn more about the event, click here.
