In December 2024, the LSU Museum of Art will unveil the site-specific installation, Confluence, by Alabama artist Jamey Grimes, in conjunction with the exhibition A Bayou State of Mind. The installation explores the dynamic relationship between the Mississippi River and the Baton Rouge community, and serves as the inspiration for extensive public exploration of water ecology and the effects of global warming, petrochemical industry, urbanization, and nature.
