Herons on the Bayou – Artist Info Meeting
September 27, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Have you heard? An exciting public art project called Herons on the Bayou will be coming to northeast Louisiana. There will be an informational meeting for interested artists on at 8 p.m. September 27 at The Palace. All artists interested in submitting designs are encouraged to attend.
This project will revolve around unique sculptures that will stand 6-7 feet tall and act as beacons throughout our community. Memphis has Tigers, New Orleans has Bead Dogs and Street Cars, and Slidell has Pelicans. Our sculpture will be a Heron, inspired by the Blue Heron that can be found in this area.
Our community will be invited to submit possible designs for the Herons. We will host a competition for our local schools, art programs, art instructors, college art students, university art students and any community member young and old that has an original design concept that they can bring to fruition in paint or mosaic. Artists will submit design ideas and our Sponsors will be given the opportunity to select the design that best suits them. As an incentive to our sponsors, we are allowing the sponsors to select from the submitted and approved designs based on the order in which we receive their sponsorship.
