Holiday Arts Tour is almost Here!
Artists will be hosted by businesses and sell their arts and crafts in downtown Ruston the weekend before Thanksgiving. There will also be another poetry reading this year, as well as musical performances, kids’ activities, and the Community Variety Show!
ARToberfest Was Great.
We sampled many original and local beers made by area home brewers at The Norton Building this year, as well as many other regional beers provided by Marsala Beverage. The local food trucks and the tunes were great, and we were able to raise money for the arts! Thank You ARToberfest attendees!
The North Central Louisiana Arts Council, believing that the visual, performing and literary arts are a necessary enhancement for all individuals, seeks to enrich the region by fostering opportunities for creative expression; to establish a strong presence of the arts wherein the artists, arts organizations and community can thrive; and to share our diverse cultural heritage, celebrating not just who we are, but what we can become. The North Central Louisiana Arts Council serves the five parishes of Lincoln, Bienville, Claiborne, Jackson, and Union.
NCLAC is supported by its Members, and a grant from the Louisiana Division of the Arts, Office of Cultural Development, Department of Culture, Recreation & Tourism, in cooperation with the Louisiana State Arts Council, and administered by Shreveport Regional Arts Council. Funding has also been provided by the National Endowment for the Arts.
