Hope Your Family Doesn't Drive You Crazy in This Merry Season

Having a White....Trash Christmas

Even Movie Blog Boy is doing the family thing today. Trudeau has an idea for a fun family project. Since RRBJ ate Christmas dinner yesterday, we'll brunch it today, complete with Noma's jam on our instant waffles.

Community + Centenary College

PC080014-1 Animal Print Dress PC080018-1

Students in Centenary College's Art 295: Introduction to Community-Based Arts probably experienced one of the most hands on classes of their academic careers. Instructor Leia Lewis and her class actively engaged the community of Highland from the start of the creation of the The Highland Spirit House Project.

Early in the semester KSCL interviewed Lewis and Dr. Mat Schwarzman about community based arts projects.

The local project drew much of its inspiration from New Orleans artist John Scott. Scott was awarded a MacArthur Genius Award in 1992. He spent his life transforming metal and wood into visual stories about black culture in New Orleans. One of his grandest works is the huge public sculpture Spirit House.
It was funded through the Percent for Art Program. For more examples of Scott's work click here.

A celebration of all the hard work done by students and community members was held Sunday at Meadows Museum. It will be interesting to watch the progress of this community and college collaboration.

RRBJ doesn't care if you say "Merry Christmas" or not. We're just celebrating the fact this is day one of December 2007. We'll let the goof ball talking heads argue amongst themselves while we get distracted by the pretty decorations.

Thank you MJW's for the use of The Night Life. We lub us some downtown Shreveport when it's twinkling in merry-happy-ho-ho lights.
