Art in the Park

November 4, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join us for a celebration of art and nature!

Richard Fleming Park, 7919 West Lakeshore Drive, Shreveport

Art in the Park is a free annual community event that features artists from the Shreveport-Bossier area whose work depicts nature and wildlife or uses natural materials as their medium.

Visitors will enjoy dozens of local artists that take inspiration from nature, hands-on art activities for all ages, live artist demonstrations, live music, food trucks, and more.

Music Line-up:

Twang Darkly

Twang Darkly conjures rural space music, an instrumental stew of Appalachian sounds, spiritual jazz, and world fusion.  Founder and composer Michael Futreal builds and plays dulcimers and flutes of scrap wood, gourds, and bamboo, also performing with conventional instruments such as guitar, ukulele, and harmonica.  The trio’s inventiveness is completed by Joel Boultinghouse on guitar and bass along with Lane Bayliss on drums.  A regular on the ArkLaTex scene since 2010, Twang Darkly explores secret paths that intertwine tradition and creativity.  Find out more at https://michaelfutreal.com
