It travels through natural settings, the business district, the offices of state government, the city's oldest neighborhoods, and beautiful landscapes that change with the seasons.

The Art Tour expands on our sightseeing tours to showcase expressions in differing art forms. Spread, displayed in locations from north of the Capital Lakes to south of South Blvd.
Downtown Baton Rouge has a plentiful and rich diversity of art. From north of the State Capitol to south of South Blvd hidden in plain sight and displayed off the beaten path art is celebrated. Some of the art was commissioned to decorate public buildings. Some was rescued from storm ravaged buildings marked for destruction after Katrina. This eclectic display is showcased in many forms, created by a galaxy of famous artists.
Art in the city is highlighted annually by the Ebb & Flow Festival and sustained throughout the year by visiting exhibits at the LSU Museum of Art, the Louisiana Arts and Science Museum and in other community locations.
Some of the artists featured are Ivan Mestrovich, Conrad Albrezio, Frank Hayden, Clementine Hunter and Baton Rouge native Adelaide Brent.
