The July artwalk is here, and it’s something special. We’re partnering with downtown’s newest historic conversion, the cool former Commercial National Bank building at 509 Market-turned- The Standard apartments! You’ll be able to jump on the free artwalk trolley for a trip to three other art-filled venues downtown. What a night it’s going to be!
Roll into your July 4th holiday with tours of the beautiful The Standard 509 located at 509 Texas (corner of Texas and Market). The Standard will also be filled with artists, performers and more:
Artwalk artists include:
Christine White Bailey
La Vie En Rose
Robert E Trudeau
Marvin Jus’Marvin Smith
You’ll see live performances by Will James, Jus’Marvin Smith and Andronicus Scott.
After you’ve seen, done and eaten, jump on the free trolley to 515 Marshall Street in the Slattery Building for the opening of Kevin Langley Art Show: Where Art Comes Alive. The art, done in 3-D and Animation, appears that it is jumping off the canvas.
The next stop is Central ARSTATION for a special expanded Red River Quilters Art Quilt show that will have beautiful art quilts hanging in both the lobby and the Engine Room. There will be 4 hands-on art activity tables where guests make their own floral mini-quilts with attachable fabric scraps (no sewing!). Guests may take their mini-quilts home – or leave behind to be combined into a full-size Flower Quilt made that night.
Across the street, Minicine? – 846 Texas Avenue- will feature the “Best Wishes, Molly McCombs, Shreveport, LA” photography exhibit. Join Molly for a Shreveport-centric evening where you will view oversized photo prints and found video, interact with an altar dedicated to our fair city, and listen to Michael Futreal’s site-specific ambient soundscape featuring Louisiana birds, cicadas and trains.
