Cherished: The Art of Clementine Hunter

The LSU Museum of Art will present Cherished: The Art of Clementine Hunter, from July 11 to October 13, in Baton Rouge. The show includes paintings and objects from the collections of the LSU Museum of Art, the LSU Rural Life Museum, the Alexandria Museum of Art, private collectors, and Hunter’s descendants. In her works, Cherished explores some of Hunter’s most repeated patterns, subjects, and motifs, including brightly-colored zinnias, church scenes, and women picking cotton, bringing together the many examples to highlight the subtle variations found in individual objects. This show also explores generational memories of many who have loved this artist throughout the end of her lifetime.
