Frank Leahy and Eduard Minivich Lunte-Goldspeil
Bending the Bows:  Canadian fiddle champion Frank Leahy and Russian violinist Eduard Minivich perform at The Rose Theatre during their 11-parish tour of Region 8 in 2003.
  
  
Lunte-Goldspeil:  The Lunte/Goldspeil Flute & Guitar Duo are just one several area artists and ensembles who provide school residencies throughout this region.
Northeast Louisiana Arts Council, as the umbrella organization for all the Arts in Region 8, forms partnerships with local and statewide public, private and corporate entities to achieve our goal of promoting interest and appreciation of the Arts in these diverse communities.

Public Art

Public places are the initial and sometimes the only exposure to an art form for many Northeast Louisiana residents. The Arts Council, in a cooperative effort with the Cities of Monroe and West Monroe and municipalities throughout Region 8, has been instrumental in increasing the community's awareness of the contribution that public art makes to the quality of life by making art public.  While area artists are preferred, to insure that we have the finest examples of art in public places, all submissions for public art projects coordinated by the Arts Council are adjudicated by panels comprised of residents from a broad spectrum representing the community at large.

Multi-Parish Projects


The Rural Underserved Presenters and Representatives, better known as RUPAR, as a network of rural presenters, provides the forum for the Arts Council to form new partnerships with Arts organizations from the various parishes. The only consortia of its type in the State of Louisiana, this alliance has enabled our staff to promote interparish cooperation through the creation of partnerships to produce Arts projects. Multi-parish projects affecting rural under-served communities receive the highest priority for funding by the Louisiana Division of the Arts through its statewide competitive grants program.  During its developing period, RUPAR defined itself even more by deciding that any artist who wished to be considered for regional touring must have the ability to provide Arts in Education school residencies while here for the public performances.

    
Arts-in-Education Programs

The Arts Council's partnership with local, regional, and national corporations and foundations enables pARTnership: Building Today for Tomorrow, our AIE programming, to reach over 30,000 school children in our 11-parish area annually. With this partial underwriting and our ability to engage artists of the highest quality and renown, area school boards lower their costs and increase the impact of limited state 8(g) funding by taking advantage of block-booking performances that are now available because of RUPAR members serving as liaison between the Arts Council and the individual parish school boards.
