A two-part exhibition featuring forty educational panels showing how visual artists from Renaissance Europe to present-day Baton Rouge have used their powers to make populations living on the fringes of society visible, to encourage social change, and to inspire hope. A digital billboard installed along with the panels will provide audiences with the opportunity for multi-media interactivity. Curated by LSU art history students and Prof. Darius Spieth during fall semester 2009.  Contact Joe Givens at (501) 428-3278 or email at for more details regarding these exhibits.
