One of the nation's longest-standing professional artist cooperative galleries, Baton Rouge Gallery houses contemporary works from professional visual artists and promotes education through exhibits, programs, and events. Monthly exhibitions, which change out the first Wednesday of each month, allow visitors to gawk at the aesthetic talents of the gallery's artist members, including photographers, painters, and stained-glass and multimedia artists. Although everyday admission is free, as part of the gallery's elite support squad members receive free or discounted special-event admission—and in the case of patron membership, free or discounted admission for up to four guests, making it easy to mend fences after a splash fight with a gang of rival watercolorists.

Typically, when someone walks into a restaurant and leaves with a piece of artwork it's a misdemeanor. But at café @ artspace it's not just legal, but encouraged—as long as you pay for it. Since the café is attached to artspace—a hub for art exhibitions, poetry readings, and live concerts—there's always a selection of original artworks by regional artists on hand in the gift shop. These creations occupy diners as they wait for one of the café's golf-themed sandwiches or housemade desserts, which they can order from the menu or a chalkboard scrawled with the day's specials. Meals may be prepared to go or enjoyed in the café, where free WiFi allows diners to tweet photos of their silverware.

Preservation is as much a priority as presentation at LeMieux Galleries, which is why the displays that the shop crafts from thousands of frames and acid-free mats often involve leaving a buffer of air between delicate paintings and glass. Framers there ensure that stolen copies of the Declaration of Independence can be secretly enjoyed for generations to come with their careful framing techniques, which can preserve the natural edge of paper and safeguard the stitches of antique needlework. In more than a quarter century in the business, the store has displayed everything from souvenir magazines to jerseys within their frames, the styles of which range from sleek contemporary to the ornate gold moulding that grows unbidden in French palaces. LeMieux Galleries also exhibits sculptures, paintings, and ceramics by artists from the Gulf South.

The guides at Cajun Tours and Cruises lead small groups on expansive adventures through the history and architecture of New Orleans. Experts meet groups at their hotels, houses, or couch forts at 9 a.m. to venture out on citywide jaunts. Eyes explore prime examples of Southern architecture, including Creole townhouses with asymmetrical arched openings and stucco exteriors, and shotgun houses with covered front porches and lacey Victorian ornamentation. Camera wielders click photos, freezing moments in the French Quarter, Jackson Square, and St. Louis Cathedral before wandering past the site where the levees broke during Hurricane Katrina. In City Park, guides dole out refreshments at the Pavilion, recounting how the sculpture garden was donated and how it once came to life on a full moon. After picnics, visitors hop rides on streetcars and cruise down St. Charles Avenue to take in more beautiful New Orleans structures, returning to their home bases at 4 p.m.
