BATON ROUGE, La (BRPROUD)- Louisiana State University Museum of Art (LSUMOA) is getting ready for its upcoming State of the Art: Record exhibition to present starting Mar. 10 through Jun. 19 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

This exhibition of art from 20 artists from varied backgrounds explores the meaning of the word ‘record’ to better understand the world around us.

According to LSUMOA, this exhibition reveals a broad sense of the concept—where some artist grapple with the constant unfolding historical record while others attempt to record concepts that are “too big for words”.

Kellie Romany, one of the artists featured in the exhibition, is an abstract painter interested in bodily representation, materiality, and the history of the painting process. Using a color palette of skin tones, Romany creates objects that act as a catalyst for discussion about human connections, femininity, and race and the systems surrounding these themes.
