Louisiana Trail Riders

TWO EXHIBITIONS LOOKING INTO THE CULTURE OF THE BLACK COWBOY AT ARTSPACE

JUNE 12, 2021

The Shreveport Regional Arts Council is showcasing the contributions of African-American trail riders to the Trail Riding culture of Northwest Louisiana in two spectacular exhibitions.

LOUISIANA TRAIL RIDERS, an exhibition of powerful black and white photographic images by Louisiana State University Art professor Jeremiah Ariaz, documents the little-known, deep-rooted Africa-American trail riding tradition born of generations of working farms and raising cattle in Creole Louisiana.

SADDLES AND SPURS “Out of the Shadows,” features the story of the trail riding culture of Northwest Louisiana. Starched shirts, saddles, belt buckles, boots, and memorabilia of the almost 75 Black trail riding clubs that make up the Bayou State and Northwest Louisiana Trail Riders Association are on display upstairs in CoolSpace.

Both exhibitions open Saturday, June 12 from noon to 6:00 p.m. @ Artspace, 708 Texas St. In downtown Shreveport.

Gameport

SCI-PORT DISCOVERY CENTER PRESENTS: GAME-PORT

JUNE 13, 2021

Sci-Port Discovery Center’s GamePort exhibit will take a look at the evolution of games and digital gaming; from historic board games like Candy Land, Checkers, and Backgammon to classic and newer digital games that can be played with a giant custom-made retro-inspired game controller. The classic early 1970’s Pong game has been reimagined into a game called “Port Pong” that will feature an overhead playing “table” where participants will stand in a portal and use their hands as the pong paddles to volley the electric pong “ball” back and forth to each other.

GamePort will also feature a few digital game-inspired Putt-Putt golf greens, a Sci-Port Amusement Gallery featuring some classic pinball games and early video games, a Mousetrap-inspired pneumatic chair lift, a giant Simon Says, an Angry Birds-influenced game, and a special area called “Game Guts” that will feature the inner workings of classic game systems over the last thirty years. This exhibit, providing an interactive gaming playground for people of all ages, has been developed and designed by local “Imagineers” Ryan McCutcheon, Bonné Summers, and Luke Lee.
