Unscene! Unveiling the Beaded Blanket Trail in Shreveport Common
Artspace Shreveport – UNcommon, UNparallelled, and UNSCENE! Be one of the first to walk through the trail of 20 nationally renowned Soundsuit Artist “Nick Cave” inspired and community “Bead-A-Thon” created blankets that will be framed and permanently displayed throughout the creative community of Shreveport Common on Saturday, January 20, 2018, from noon to 6:00 p.m. during UNSCENE! Participate in a “final” Bead-a-Thon at the Central ARTSTATION. Enjoy performances in the ArtStation Engine Room from the productions of “AS IS” and “UNTIL” by Nick Cave performed by musician Michael Futreal, soloist Brenda Wimberly, accompanist Sereca Henderson, spoken word artist Poetic X and choreographer Luther Cox, Jr. of Inter City Row Modern Dance Company. Don’t miss this entire “Unabashed” day of fun with food trucks, hot cider and tours of the opening of the newest artspace exhibit, “ON THE WALL”. Walk or hop on a golf cart and meet the Artists who have created the “Beaded Blanket Trail” through Shreveport Common. UNSCENE! provides an Unprecedented way to experience the UNcommon cultural district of Shreveport Common. For one full year, Northwest Louisiana resident artists Heather Beauvais, Jerry Davenport, Karen La Beau, Sherry Tamburo, and Kathryn Usher worked alongside nationally renowned Soundsuit Artists Nick Cave and residents of five social service agencies throughout the Shreveport Common neighborhood to create beaded blankets with a message of hope and of accepting each other “AS IS.” To keep that message alive and to continue the revitalization efforts within the nine-block neighborhood of Shreveport Common, 20 of the blankets have been framed by local NWLA artists and placed in permanent locations that form a “Beaded Blanket Trail” of art and creativity through this culturally rich neighborhood. The stories of the history and creation of the blankets have been written and recorded and are available on the Shreveport Common App for anyone passing a framed beaded blanket to hear on a smartphone. Frame Artists include Megan Taylor, Bruce Allen, Martha Bills, Julie Glass, Jim Hayes, James Marks, Tama Nathan, Maria Schmelz, Sherry Tamburo, James Thomas, and Kathryn Usher. Story writers include Tama Nathan, Maria Schmelz, Robert Streeter, Sherry Tamburo, and Kathryn Usher. Story Performers include Angelique Feaster-Evans, Sherry Tamburo and Kathryn Usher. The four social service agencies whose residents both inspired and helped to create the blankets include Providence House, a homeless to home resident program for families; Mercy Center, Philadelphia Center’s residences for those with AIDS or who are HIV+; The McAdoo, a Volunteers of America staffed-apartment complex for those with moderate disabilities; and VOA Lighthouse, an after-school program that provides tutoring for children from Northwest Louisiana’s most disenfranchised neighborhoods. The blankets chosen for framing and permanent display include designs by Susan Duke and family members Patrick Posey, Chelsea Grissom, Chandler Jefferson and Olivia Grissom, Karen La Beau, Melissa Wilkerson, Sherry Tamburo and Heather Beauvais, Kathryn Usher and Nadine Charity with Beverly Paige and Christine Cox-Hayes, Mark Pugh, friends from the Shreveport Chapter of the Links, and Jerry Davenport. Many of the blankets tell heartfelt stories of a longing for acceptance by the various social service residents through their struggles with addiction, homelessness, living with HIV or AIDS and disabilities. The blankets names reflect their innermost messages including titles such as Transformation, Grandmother’s Garden, New Beginnings, Chaos of Addiction and Friendship. All activities welcome the public and are free of charge! Shreveport Common is a nine-block area that encompasses western downtown Shreveport and east Ledbetter Heights that was once the region’s most significant hot-bed for culture. This is where Huddie “Leadbelly” Ledbetter wrote songs like, “Goodnight Irene” and where Architect Edward Neild (Harry S. Truman’s architect) designed the Scottish Rite Cathedral, B’Nai Zion Temple and the Calanthean Temple; developed by a group of African American women for their professional husbands’ business offices. This is where Jelly Roll Morton and Count Bassie played at the Calanthean’s rooftop soirees, and where Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash and Hank Williams got their start with the KWKH Louisiana Hayride at the Municipal Auditorium. Shreveport Common has a deep cultural history. The permanent placement of the framed beaded blankets created during the year-long artist residency of Nick Cave in this community will help the neighbors continue to celebrate what is authentic, creative and sustainable about their UNcommon community. Celebrate with them on January 20, 2018, from noon to 6:00 p.m. with a walking or golf cart tour of the 20 framed blankets. Return to ARTSTATION and the Engine Room to hear performances from “AS IS” and “UNTIL” by Nick Cave, enjoy food truck offerings and hot cider. Then meet the artists and tour the newest artspace exhibition opening of “ON THE WALL” beginning at 4:00 p.m. The framed blankets are a permanent installation throughout the Shreveport Common neighborhood and can be toured complete with audio performances of the history and creation of the blankets on your own anytime by downloading the FREE Shreveport Common App. UNcommon, UNparallelled, and UNSCENE!
