By the 1980s LL&E had become one of the top independent oil and gas companies in the United States. From 1986 to 1988 LL&E amassed a highly acclaimed corporate collection of artwork by contemporary and historic Louisiana artists. With their strong ties to the local community, LL&E sought to make a commitment to the area by collecting art by Louisiana artists. Under the curatorial guidance of Auseklis Ozols, currently the Director of the New Orleans Art Academy, the collection was formed. Nationally and regionally renowned artists including William Woodward, George Dureau, Jim Richard, John Clemmer and Pat Trivigno were selected for the collection. David Noll and Auseklis Ozols actually traveled to LL&E's properties in Paradis and Lake DesAllemands to paint the unique Louisiana landscape. This impressive corporate collection is diverse and consists of paintings,watercolors, prints and sculptures.
