Ruston Cultural District seeks artists for new ‘Puppy Project’

Ruston Cultural District seeks area artists to participate in their new art initiative, titled the “Puppy Project.”  This project is an extension of the popular Bulldog Project, a public art exhibition that launched in September 2018. The Puppy Project will feature 50 miniature bulldog statues that will be used as a canvas for local artists on a first come, first serve basis.

Eligible area artists are invited to enhance one of the 50 miniature solid molded bulldogs for a silent auction event on April 7, 2022. Artists will receive 50% of the proceeds of the sale. The remaining funds will support future events and programs in the Ruston Cultural District. The official call for artists, including the project guidelines, can be found on the Ruston Cultural District Facebook page.

“The Cultural District is looking forward to seeing all the incredible art we know will come from this new project,” said Amy Stegall, president of the Ruston Cultural District. “We have so many talented artists in North Louisiana, and we are excited to give them a new and creative avenue for their works.”

RCD hopes that this new initiative will ​​provide an opportunity for the growing arts community within the footprint of the Ruston Cultural District, while continuing to build on the beloved Bulldog Project.

“Not only will this project allow 50 artists to demonstrate their talents, but it will also provide the community a way to bring a piece of the Bulldog Project home with them,” said Stegall.
