Starting in 2018, the LSU Museum of Art begins a new tradition with its inaugural spring gala: La Fête de la Rivière. Come celebrate creative contributions to Louisiana culture at this special party on the river on February 24, 2018. Guests will have an opportunity to experience the museum in a different way as the rotating galleries transform into a festive atmosphere with live music, Louisiana-themed cuisine and cocktails, and a video installation from students in LSU's digital art program. Fran Harvey serves as Gala Chair and Sany Arst serves as Gala Sponsorship Chair.

For Patron Party ticket holders, the event will begin with a pre-gala preview on the Pennington Rooftop Terrace at 6 p.m.. The gala officially kicks off at 7 p.m. in the fifth-floor museum. Spend the evening dancing, strolling through the permanent collection exhibition, Art in Louisiana, and bidding on a 
selection of high-end items to help support the museum's mission. 

Ticket prices range from $150 for patrons and $100 for individuals with discounts for current members and young professionals under 40. Remember, tickets and auction items are all tax-deductible. Proceeds go to supporting the museum's art education and community initiatives like ArtWorks, MUSE, Neighborhood Arts Project and more.
