Downtown Shreveport March Artwalk

  • Joel Rodgers

Artwalk anyone?

“The March Downtown Artwork is going green (and orange and blue and yellow, and…)”, this according to a press release from the DDA.

As it appears, the March Artwalk will feature multiple colors and cool, fun, local art. To top that off, it even looks as if it’ll be adorable too. “It’s going to be a colorful night in Shreveport, Wednesday, March 7 from 5-8 pm at the March Downtown Artwalk. More than 20 artists at seven locations will be featuring everything from prints and cards to handmade felted scarves and jewelry. Younger artists will also be featured- art from Ascension School will be on display at Central ARTSTATION, 801 Crockett St,” Liz Swaine, Executive Director; Downtown Development Authority

Here’s a list of artists and venues featured at the Downtown March Artwalk;
