Downtown Art Crawl slated for this week

By Madison Remrey

An art crawl, hosted by Fine Line Supply Co., is going to be held in Downtown Ruston on May 13. There are nine participating businesses, each with their own artists to be featured.  

At this event, the community will have the opportunity to walk around downtown and hangout with friends while looking at art from local artists.  

“You just come out, hangout with your friends, get some drinks and refreshments, look at and buy art and walk around,” said Henry McCoy, owner of Fine Line Supply Co.  

Various businesses will participate, all of which are creative-based that usually work with artists even outside of doing art crawl.  

Some of the businesses that will be participating are Ruston Artisans, Garden Baby, Creative Exchange, The Fringe Gallery and Limitless Grooming Lounge.  

Holding an art crawl in Downtown Ruston will not only give artists a chance to feature their work, but it also gives local businesses an opportunity of exposure to the community that they may not get otherwise.  

“There’s a lot of places downtown that people just don’t know exist,” McCoy said.  

The Downtown Ruston Art Crawl will be May 13 from 5-9 p.m. It is free and open to the public.
