by: Cal Editor
Paul and Lulu Hilliard University Art Museum
Elemore Morgan, Jr. (1931 2008) was a renowned artist in Louisiana. Known primarily as a landscape painter, Morgan was also a beloved and influential teacher. As a member of the University of Louisiana (known then as the University of Southwest Louisiana) Art Department for over thirty years, Morgans influence as a mentor was profound. The University Art Museum will honor the artist and teacher with an exhibition of works by artists who credit Morgan as their artistic mentor. These artists tell the story of Morgan as an inspiration, an artist, and a teacher. The Exhibition begins October 1, 2011 and continues until May 19, 2012.
