Highland arts tour highlights neighborhood

Posted: Updated:

Sunday was the first of the month, which means it was the Highland Open Studio Tours day. The artists' studio tour and market began six months ago. Nine studios around Highland featured 24 artists and their work. Organizers say the event highlights the Highland Neighborhood and Shreveport's many artists.

"The Highland area, it's the newest cultural district in Louisiana," Su Stella said."It's just to bring awareness and to have our studio open so people can actually see us work, see us create and be a part of it."

The tour is offered the first Sunday of each month and starts at Topeka Street, just off Highland Park.
