Meadows Museum opens for special arts event in July

Centenary’s Meadows Museum of Art is officially taking its summer break along with students at the College, but the museum will open for a pair of special events this month. A family-friendly open house and a stopmotion animation workshop for 4 th through 8 th grade students present unique options for beating the heat and enjoying the Meadows this summer.

All ages are invited to the free open house from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 14, to explore the Furthur exhibition with art by Joshua Chambers, Thom Johnson, and Paige Powell. Young patrons can also enjoy mini-sessions with Little You Yoga and shaved ice from the Shiver Shack until 1:30 p.m.

At the workshop on Tuesday, July 24, 4 th through 8 th grade students will arrive at 9:00 a.m. to learn about stop-motion animation and how it is made, followed by a chance to create their own stop-motion cartoons. The program also includes a mid-morning break with healthy snacks and mindful movement with Little You Yoga. At noon, parents are invited back to the museum for a screening of the students’ cartoons with popcorn and lemonade provided.

The cost of the workshop is $50 per student or $80 when two students sign up at once. Due to scheduling and workspace limitations, attendance is capped at 50 students. To register, visit centenary.edu/ animation. More information about both events is available on the Meadows Museum Facebook page

Many political “movers and shakers” attend the monthly meetings of the North Shreveport Business Association (NSBA). It’s common for the 100-plus tickets to the luncheon to sell out with a waiting list for cancellations. Such was the case for the mayoral forum on Tuesday, Oct 8.

Here we go again with meddling federal judges. The 5 th U.S Circuit Court of Appeals came down hard on Louisiana charter schools last week. Charter schools, that by definition are independent with major input from parents, now will have to bargain with teachers’ unions.

The Supreme Court of old was more majestic with few periods of confrontation. Just a decade ago, twothirds of Americans had great confidence in the Court. No more. There’s trouble brewing in those marble temple walls. Confidence in the workings of the court and the Justices themselves have dropped to a mere 50 percent approval rating.
