In addition to holding one of the largest university-affiliated art collections in the South, the museum presents world-class touring exhibitions of regional, American, and European painting, sculpture, decorative arts, works on paper, and photography.

The Museum’s 5000-work collection is highlighted in galleries of American and British portraiture and decorative arts, American Arts and Crafts pottery, Chinese Jade, and modern and contemporary paintings and sculptures, with a focus on Southern artists. The LSU Museum of Art is a gateway connecting the University and the community at large to a diverse range of artistic styles and periods.
