COLLECTION SPOTLIGHT: ANGELA GREGORY
COLLECTION SPOTLIGHT: ANGELA GREGORY

LSU Museum of Art’s latest collection spotlight, opening July 12, will focus on sculpture by Angela Gregory held in the museum’s permanent collection. New Orleans native Angela Gregory (1903–1990) decided to become a sculptor at age fourteen—an ambitious path for a woman in the early twentieth century.

Baton Rougeans might recognize her work from locations around the city. She sculpted relief profiles for the exterior of the State Capitol as well as interior railing, she completed bas-relief panels for the Louisiana National Bank (now Watermark Hotel), and she contributed sculptural railing to the exterior of LSU’s Hodges Hall.
