LSUMOA celebrates Independence Day early with preview party

This Saturday, June 25, celebrate the Fourth of July a week early at the LSU Museum of Art’s Red, White & Blue Preview Party. Held on the third, fifth and sixth floors of the Shaw Center for the Arts from 7 to 10 p.m., the event welcomes Baton Rouge to a night of food, drinks, a cash bar, music by the 99,000AD Band, and a silent auction benefiting the museum.

All of this comes before the main event on July 4, where the party continues on the Pennington Rooftop Terrace for fireworks on the Mississippi along with even more food and entertainment. Anyone who buys a ticket for the preview party automatically gets into the Fourth of July party with one guest, plus only $15 per additional guest. All proceeds will benefit exhibitions and educational programs at LSUMOA.
