Multi Cultural Center for the South, Shreveport, seeks artists, craftsmen and activity coordinators

Janice Gatlin, activities director for the MultiCultural Center for the South, is looking for

a) artists appropriate for MCCS exhibits.
b) curators who would like to choose the theme or group of artists for an exhibit.
c) craftspersons ready to present an exhibit or activity.
d) child-friendly workers who can guide groups of children through activity sessions (for a fee that meets regional art-guide standards).

"An example of the kind of artist that is ideal for MCCS is Conchita Iglesias McElwee," said Gatlin. "Last year Conchita presented a marvelous show based on her Dia de Los Muertos art."

An artist's work does not have to be consciously ethnic, however.

Those with questions should call Gatlin at 424-1380 or email a bio and examples of work to jgatlin-mccs@sport.rr.com.
