If you missed it: A Rembrandt selfie

Peter Max’s four splashy paintings of Cuomo with a “tribute to the governor of New York” statement emblazoned at the bottom.

These amazingly retro NASA travel posters, created by Joby Harris and David Delgado, feature three real-life alien planets: Kepler 186f, HD 40307g and Kepler 16b. They were created for NASA's PlanetQuest project at the agency's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California to share facts about the strange new worlds with the public. Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech

There are only two days left in the LSU Museum of Art’s Kickstarter campaign to bring Paris to Baton Rouge. That’s how museum curator Katie Pfohl sums up the exhibit, “Toulouse-Lautrec and La Vie Moderne: Paris 1880-1910,” set to open on Sept. 5.
“Paris is the capitol of France, and Baton Rouge is the capitol of Louisiana,” she says. “Look at what art has done for Paris. Through this campaign, we want to give the community a chance to be involved, and maybe in the end, art can do the same thing for Baton Rouge.”  ROMILLER@THEADVOCATE.COM
