Baton Rouge Gallery Art Now Displayed at BTR 


Baton Rouge Gallery (BRG) is collaborating with the Baton Rouge Metro Airport (BTR) to enhance the experience of visitors and local residents flying in and out of Baton Rouge. The partnership, “BRG@BTR,” brings the work of over two dozen Louisiana-based artists into the airport, giving travelers the opportunity to enjoy the work of accomplished living artists working in our area, just minutes after they’ve stepped off their plane. Visit Baton Rouge is sponsoring the BRG@BTR exhibit.  
 
With BRG@BTR, those visiting or returning to Louisiana’s capital city via the state’s second largest airport will experience a dynamic, high quality rotating art program curated by BRG from its roster of 70 professional visual artist members who work in a wide array of media and explore a variety of subject matter. Artworks will be rotated periodically, allowing repeat visitors new experiences and a deeper look at local culture.
 
As part of this project, the space within BTR formerly utilized as a smoker’s lounge (located in Concourse B) has been completely reimagined and refurbished to serve as a serene and engaging gallery space. With seating, reading materials, and updated LED track lighting, it is the perfect space for travelers looking to engage with local culture or waiting to board their flight. In addition, dozens of original works of art have also been placed throughout the airport’s two concourses. Each work is accompanied by information about the artist and an easy-to-scan QR code that allows travelers to find out more or inquire about purchasing works.
