Many folks spent their weekend waiting in line to buy Christmas presents. In New York City some folks waited in line 5 hours to viewstreet art. The line was 1/5 of a mile long. Here's video from YouTube that captured the wait to see 11 Spring Street.
Shows in Shreveport worth standing in line for? Clementine Hunter's grandson, James Hunter, has a show at Columbia Cafe. It closes December 31. At Meadows Museum a couple of other folk art shows run a little longer.
By the way if you want the scoop on all the art happenings in our area you've gotta read Robert Trudeau's site. The Shreveport Times thinks so much of Trudeau's work they've now got him on the front page of their website. About the Photo: Street Art in Shreveport at Columbia Park Summer 06.
"I found bliss early. It was reading or thinking in the spread out trunk of a pink flowered mimosa tree in our front yard.
I made my freest art back then. When I was a little kid alone in my room, I danced to music from a tiny record player. I had a built up platform in the bottom of my closet, so I would push the clothes back on either side and dance away in funky costumes I found around the house. Now when I create art, I am seeking to go back to my bliss." Usher May 24, 2010
