708 Texas St.
During the summer of 2021, when everyone thought the most recent worldwide pandemic might be coming to an end, Architect, artist and father, Mike McSwain, and his artist son Larsson sketched their way through Louisiana, Texas, Colorado and New York trying to make sense of how Covid-19 stopped the world. They illustrate their discovery of the beauty in everyday life by transforming road signs and rest areas, capturing the allure of canyons and chapels, and illustrating little-known lodges and some of their favorite pit stops to make up an artful journey everyone can enjoy. “ALONG FOR THE RIDE” opens at artspace in downtown Shreveport on Friday, November 12, 2021 and runs through January 15.
Mike McSwain says, “I believe that this show is the embodiment of how two normal dudes can tackle today’s time, with all the uncertainty and weirdness, and turn it into a tale of love and respect for each other and for our collective brothers and sisters all around us.”
Come “Along for the Ride” and take a journey through the world of artists Mike and Larsson McSwain at artspace, 708 Texas Street in downtown Shreveport, November 12, 2021-January 15, 2022. www.artspaceshreveport.com.
