The Shreveport Regional Arts Council (SRAC) continues its long standing tradition of showcasing great local, regional and national art with events in 2021. Despite the difficulties of Covid-19 since last year, art continues to flourish and the exhibits at the Central ARTSTATION, Shreveport Common and at artspace downtown.

All exhibits will run for several weeks so there is plenty of time to visit and marvel at the art while maintaining social distancing and wear a mask for as long as the mask mandate and safety protocols are in place.

Hours may vary, so check the Artspace Facebook page for details: https://www.facebook.com/ArtspaceShreveport
