The forecast is about 90 outside but way, way cool inside at the Louisiana State Museum downtown on Saturday, when the Art Melt is held there.

The eighth annual show is a juried exhibition sponsored by Forum 35, a group of young professionals who have pushed the Baton Rouge region to take advantage of its assets and become more welcoming to the knowledge economy.

The varied types of art at Art Melt — midsummer is not usually the time associated with art festivals — will be another illustration of the talent and inspiration available in our community.

Congratulations and thanks to Art Melt’s sponsors and volunteers.
