LOUISIANA STATE EXHIBIT MUSEUM TO PRESENT
CADDO PARISH ART STUDENT EXHIBIT
SHREVEPORT, La. — Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin invites the public to the Louisiana State Exhibit Museum to view “Project Talent,” an exhibition of artwork created by Caddo Parish students, from Tuesday, June 6 through Friday, June 26. The exhibition will display a variety of artwork including acrylic paintings on canvas, Prisma colored pencil on paper, mixed media and handmade pottery for sale. “Project Talent” will open with a reception honoring the artists and their teachers on Tuesday, June 6 from 4:30 – 7 p.m. The Friends of LSEM will provide light refreshments.
Caddo Parish School System Art Supervisor Henry Price developed Project Talent in 1975 as an enrichment program for high school students who excel in the visual arts and plan to pursue careers in the arts. Project Talent meets weekly in a studio setting taught by Caddo Magnet High School art teachers Shirlene Alexander and Curtis Bias.
“We are thrilled to give students real-world experience preparing for a professional exhibition and the opportunity to display their work in a museum setting,” LSEM Curator Nita Cole stated. “This is a tremendous opportunity for them as they prepare to embark on careers as artists.”
Admission is free and tours are available by appointment.
