The mission of the Red Stick Project is to restore pride, purpose and passion in Baton Rouge communities through the arts.
The Red Stick Project visually brands Baton Rouge as "Red Stick" through beautification, literally taking the arts to the streets with community led public art that celebrates neighborhood pride and culture. The project weaves a common "Red Stick" thread by including a red stick within the artwork connecting neighborhoods under a common theme while bringing awareness to the unique international arts culture in the Baton Rouge area.
Highlighting the science of cloud formation while creating the “Titian Clouds" series allowed participants to experience the practical use of STEM while gaining a sense of ownership in their neighborhood. A Science teacher led them through a Science experiment by creating a cloud in a bottle.
