🌟 Exploring the Byway: A Journey in Artistry

Whitney Tates Art Calls

Last Fall marked an exciting chapter as I answered the call from the Shreveport Regional Arts Council for Louisiana-themed highway signs. The canvas? The picturesque Boom or Bust Scenic Byway, a 137-mile stretch across north Louisiana from Vivian to Lake Claiborne adorned with over 20 stops and attractions.

In the midst of a talented pool of artists, I submitted four distinctive designs, each capturing the essence of the communities along the byway. The thrilling news? Two of my creations emerged victorious, earning a coveted spot in the semi-finals.

Now, the spotlight turns to the communities themselves, as residents have the power to choose their favorite design. A democratic art journey, where the chosen designs will come to life as 11 unique signs, enhancing the byway experience at each stop.

Stay tuned for the grand reveal of my designs and the eagerly awaited announcement of the winners. The byway is set to transform into a canvas of stories and creativity, and I can't wait to share this artistic expedition with you all.
