Humidity-free golf and art: JuxtAPutt-Putt installation @ Artspace Shreveport; opening party features the reggae sextet Stiff Necked Fools on Fri, June 1, 5:30 to 8 pm

Some of the city's top designers have built interactive golf courses in miniature for the summertime pleasure of the art-minded public, says Julia Foley.

There are 11 art-inspired holes to card at Artspace Shreveport, 710 Texas St.

Begin with the “JawBreaker,” designed by Jim Hayes, and find your way through “Alice in Putterland,“ designed by Ryan Shulze. Don’t get caught in the “Mousetrap” designed by JRyan Artist or lost in the “8 Bit Dungeon“ designed by Micah Harold. Seven more putting greens, says Foley, were created by Wade Easley, Dorothy Kristin Hanna, Travis Jore, Mattie Lofton, Christopher Merckle, and Mike McSwain.
