ART FROM ASHES -- SRAC needs your help

The Shreveport Regional Arts Council lost everything in an early Tuesday morning fire. The organization is in need of several things including: OFFICE SUPPLY GIFT CARDS, LEGAL PADS, COMPUTER PAPER, PAPER CLIPS, INK PENS, STICKY NOTES, MARKERS, DRY ERASE BOARDS, STAPLERS/STAPLES, COFFEE POT, COMPUTER DESK, AND ANYTHING ELSE YOU CAN IMAGINE!

To make a financial donation you can go to Chase Bank in care of "SRAC FIRE FUND."

SRAC will continue to provide the same quality of arts and community support that you have come to expect from the Shreveport Regional Arts Council. While we are putting things back together you can get updates on our status by going to our website -

For immediate assistance you can reach us at Artspace on Texas St., (318) 673-6535. We hope to have our phones on very soon at (318) 673-6500. You can also send an e-mail to Julia Foley, SRAC marketing director, at to learn more.
