The LSU Museum of Art scheduled several programs coinciding with its exhibit, “Walter Inglis Anderson: Everything I See Is New And Strange,” which runs through Oct. 13:

■ 2 p.m. Sunday, Walter Anderson’s youngest son, John Anderson, will give a gallery talk in conjunction with the exhibit’s opening weekend. Anderson will discuss his father’s work and answer questions from attendees. As the program is part of the museum’s Free First Sunday schedule, both admission to the show and the gallery talk are free to the public.

■ 10:30 a.m. Sept. 14, Saturday Arts for Families: Alphabet Art. Learn about Anderson’s life and passions, including his alphabet books.

Participants will work in the museum’s Art Lab Studio creating alphabet prints of their favorite letters. Admission is $5 per child, with free admission to museum members at the family level.

■ 10:30 a.m. Oct. 12, Saturday Arts for Families: Book Art. Explore the exhibition, then participate in a session in the museum’s Art Lab Studio, creating magical watercolor creatures. Admission is $5 per child, with free admission to museum members at the family level.
