Line and Sky is a stage for creative expression in the Shreveport arts district. This illuminated and highly interactive sculpture supports physical exploration, fitness and play. Local residents helped us create the line element through a series of community workshops. The sculpture offers a flexible and open-ended environment that is a refuge for creativity.
