The best thing to bring home from Lake Charles is original art from local artists such as Donna Price, Sue Zimmermann and Nancy Melton. Lake Charles has a unique and thriving arts community. Original work from painters, photographers and sculptors are available throughout the city, especially during the annual Spring Art Walk and Gallery Promenade, which take place in the early fall. Many of Lake Charles's artists focus their work on local scenes, capturing the true essence and beauty of the city and Southwest Louisiana. So keep your eyes open for an original painting, a signed photograph, or a ceramic sculpture, which will forever remind you of your time in Lake Charles and the talented people who call the city home.
