McNeese State University Leisure Learning is taking the SAGE series on the road with the sightseeing daytrip, “Baton Rouge on the River,” from 7 a.m.-6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 13.
Participants will visit the Louisiana State University Center for River Studies, the Shaw Center Art Gallery and the Louisiana Arts & Sciences Museum.
The LSU Center for River Studies is located near the banks of the Mississippi River and features the extraordinary Lower Mississippi River Physical Model – one of largest moving physical models in the world. This model is designed to simulate the river’s depth, sediment and flow for scientific study and is illuminated by 20 high-definition projectors, which bring the river and coast to life for visitors.
Then, participants will visit the Shaw Center Art Gallery to see the special exhibit “George Rodrigue: The Cajun Landscape,” featuring early landscape paintings by Louisiana artist George Rodrigue. Next, visitors will head to the Louisiana Arts & Science Museum, where Lin Emery’s “A Force of Nature” kinetic art exhibit is on display.
Participants will board the McNeese bus at 6:40 a.m. at the Cowboy Stadium parking lot on McNeese Street. To register, please visit www.mcneese.edu/leisure/sage. Cost is $99 until Nov. 6, then $109 after that date.
