Baton Rouge is on the move and public art is popping up everywhere! Located where people work and live, this type of art reflects the history and values of a community. Monuments & Metaphors spotlighted some of the most endearing and best known public art in Baton Rouge as well as new projects by The Walls Project, the Museum of Public Art, and the Percent for Art Program of the Louisiana State Division of the Arts. Preparatory drawings, maquettes, 3-D printer models, and full-scale photographs reveald how these public works came to be, the stories they tell, and how they were made.
