> DESCRIPTION

The hottest juried art show in the State. The 2009 Art Melt will take place Friday, July 10th from 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm in the Brunner Gallery located in the Shaw Center for the Arts in Downtown Baton Rouge.

The Art Melt is an occasion for all the senses - sights, sounds, smell, taste, and touch - guests viewing the selected pieces of art at the reception will also enjoy hors d'oeuvres, live musical entertainment, and performances. The event is free and open to the public, with a cash bar available. With a first-year reception attendance of about 800 having grown to an estimated 6,000 in the fourth year, The Art Melt 6th year will be the biggest and best yet. The selected works of the exhibit will be on display for one week in the Brunner Gallery which is open from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday."Art Melt is a great venue that gives artists the opportunity to showcase their talents at a statewide level. Events like Art Melt really give us a window into exactly what Baton Rouge and Louisiana are capable of, and I have no doubt that this year's event will be by far the best ever," said Chris Brooks, Forum 35 Board Member and Art Melt Co-Chair.
