The popular Gators on the Geaux campaign is back! Gators on the Geaux is a public art extravaganza that is showcasing Southwest Louisiana as an eccentric and creative community. Gators on the Geaux features dozens of fiberglass life-size gators that measure five and one feet standing.

The Lake Charles Symphony, in partnership with the Arts & Humanities Council of Southwest Louisiana and our generous sponsors, is producing Gators on the Geaux again, Southwest Louisiana’s largest public art project. This art campaign is modeled after Chicago’s remarkable Cows on Parade project and will feature an alligator as its theme icon.

Gators on the Geaux is a community effort designed to make public art accessible, to expand tourism, and to have fun! The project is also intended to increase awareness of the arts and humanities and of the Lake Charles Symphony. Gators on the Geaux will descend upon Southwest Louisiana by placing creatively designed gators in highly visible locations throughout the area.

Artists or their representatives, as well as Southwest Louisiana community groups, are eligible to submit design proposals to Gators on the Geaux for consideration. There is no limit to the number of proposals an artist can submit, but artists should take into consideration the number of gators that can be completed within the project timeframe without compromising design and implementation.
