Mid City's artisticcommunity

in Baton Rouge’s oldest Arts and Cultural District. We pride ourselves on promoting creative placemaking in our development and supporting artists and makers in our community.

Art is vital to our continued growth.

So we’re connecting artists to Mid City’s local shops, restaurants, and businesses to help cultivate a flourishing community.
