Downtown becomes more colorful

Shreveport - Downtown Shreveport has a lot more ambience and color to it these days. 

"Art is just a way to communicate," said artist Kathryn Usher. "The art scene in Shreveport is happening. Cost of living is low here. People can actually afford to make art full-time and make a living doing it." 

The area has an abundance of blankets and colorful potrayals that were created with the help of local organizations including the Providence House, the Mercy Center and others. 

"They also brought in people of all walks of life who work together to make these beautiful pieces," said artist Julie Glass."That's the beauty of it. It's wonderful to have that appreciated. Also, to help revitalize this area right here."
