Julie Glass will use the experience of downtown Shreveport to inspire the art she makes during her residency in the KAT tower. Her artist talks will be for everyone, both artists and members of the public who simply have an interest in the work. For her artist talk on Sunday November 13 at 1:00 pm she will take participants on a walk around downtown, in which the group will look for and collect images for inspiration and inclusion in the art piece Julie will be making. It will start at Central ArtStation where Julie will talk about how she finds images in the environment, and then the group will walk around the area, talking more, and take photos and/or sketch visuals that inspire us and say “downtown Shreveport”. During the week of her residency Julie will print and attach the images that people want to share for the project onto the wood collage pieces she will be using for the art piece, which might or might not be in the shape of the Kallenberg Tower.

The Shreveport Regional Arts Council offers an annual week-long “KAT” Residency for a Visual Artist, a Performing Artist, and a Literary Artist. This application is open exclusively to Artists who reside in Louisiana.
The selected Artists will be awarded a one-week Retreat/Residency in the KAT, with its unique architecture and historical significance. The apartment is fully equipped with a stocked kitchen, 1.5 baths, a queen-sized bed, living room, and a rooftop that provides a panoramic view of downtown Shreveport and the Shreveport Common neighborhood. Each floor of the KAT is a separate room… there are five floors and a rooftop; there is not an elevator. The stairs are quite manageable; however, each element of the space is on a different floor.
