Description:

The Imperial Calcasieu Museum serves the five parish area of Calcasieu, Cameron, Beauregard, Allen, and Jeff Davis in Southwest Louisiana. The Museum is a well established 501c3 cultural organization supporting visual arts and artists, and cultural preservation. It has served our community for 50 years and is the only arts and cultural museum serving the area. The mission is to exhibit and support the visual arts, maintain a strong art in education program by offering educational opportunities, and to preserve the unique culture and history of the region. The vision statement is to position the ICM as the leading fine arts and cultural center for the region by increasing awareness, participation, and involvement.

Programming areas are:
The Historic Museum: Housing artifacts, information, and memorabilia depicting life in the Old Imperial Calcasieu Region (now the five parish area) from the Native Americans through the early settlers.
The Gibson-Barham Gallery: Maintaining a full and diverse exhibit schedule of contemporary and traditional visual artists, new emerging artists, as well as Calcasieu Parish Art Students annual juried exhibit.
The Gallery Annex: Newly expanded meeting and exhibit space.

Over 375 years old the Sallier Oak towers over the grounds of the Museum. It was here on the site of the Museum that Charles Sallier, whom the lake and city take it's name from, built his winter home under the shade of this very oak tree. The tree is a live oak and is on the registry of the Live Oak Society of Louisiana.
