The LSU Museum of Art presents “Margaret Evangeline: On War,” on view March 13 – August 2. This retrospective exhibition of Baton Rouge native Margaret Evangeline examines the nature of modern war and violence through the artist’s provocative paintings, mixed media, and installation works. Evangeline’s art explores the causes and effects of modern combat, and reflects the capacity of art to represent and respond to war. Her art is often itself made using the tools of war, her paintings and installations produced through gunshots and punctured by bullet holes so that they embody the very violence she seeks to critique.
The LSU Museum of Art presents Mexico in New Orleans: A Tale of Two Americas. This is the first major museum exhibition to explore the captivating artistic exchange between Louisiana and Mexico from the 1920s through 1950s, a period of vibrant cultural and artistic connections between the two regions. The exhibition tells the story of a decades-long dialogue between Mexican and Louisianan artists that critically shaped the art of both countries, resulting in artistic affinities that continue to connect Louisiana and Mexico today.
This exhibition features more than 80 works by both Mexican and Louisianan artists who were part of this captivating international cultural exchange and will be accompanied by a richly illustrated bilingual exhibition catalogue designed by the LSU School of Art. For more information, visit our website at LSUMOA.org/Mexico.

About Late Night LSU
Moved in to your residence hall or Baton Rouge apartment and looking for something to do before school starts? Look no further than Late Night LSU, an event that takes over the LSU Student Union with huge party that in past years has included music and dancing, games, inflatables, aqua massages, oxygen bars, laser tag, and a step show. Late Night LSU provides the perfect opportunity for new LSU students to meet new people in a safe environment.
In the early 2000s, Campus-Community Coalition for Change hosted the first Late Night LSU to provide a safe alternative to prevent binge-drinking. In 2008, Student Activities Board began hosting Late Night LSU, and in 2014, hosted more than 2,000 students throughout the LSU Student Union.
Late Night LSU is free to all LSU students, with Tiger Card LSU ID.
Each LSU student may bring one non-LSU guest of at least 18 years of age with valid government-issued ID showing proof of age, such as a driver’s license or military ID. Guest admission is also free.

August 29, 2015 marks the tenth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. During Community Bound, we will commemorate the survivors of Hurricane Katrina, honor those who were lost, and recognize that there is still much to be done.

All volunteers should check-in for Community Bound at 7:30 a.m. The service project will begin with a brief kickoff program in the LSU Student Union Theater at 8:00 a.m.

About Community Bound
Community Bound is a service plunge program designed especially for first-year LSU students. The program works in close collaboration with the East Baton Rouge school system, Aramark, City Year Baton Rouge, and Volunteers in Public Schools, and provides general fix-up projects, like painting, landscaping, and building reading nooks to approximately 25 primary and secondary schools. This program is a great way for students to meet friends and classmates, to learn more about the local impacts of Hurricane Katrina, and to get involved in their new community.
Community Bound was first hosted by the LSU Honors College, but became a Campus Life program in 2006. The program is designed each summer by a committee of faculty, staff, and student leaders coordinated through Volunteer LSU.
In 2015, Community Bound will be open to all LSU students, including incoming freshmen, new transfer students, and new students participating in the BRCC Bridge Program, and returning students to LSU, the LSU Graduate School, the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine, and the LSU Paul M. Hebert Law School.
Participation is free; transportation and lunch will be included.
Students wishing to participate should register by August 15.
