BIG ANNOUNCEMENT:  This year's musical guest is none other than local favorite "Soulfish Blues Band".  After performing with super talent Percy Sledge for a number of years, they are now joined by a lurid female vocalist from Deep South Louisiana to round out the act.  They draw inspiration from artists such as Jeff Beck, Aretha Franklin, Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top, Robben Ford, B.B. King, and Irma Thomas.

FEATURED SPONSOR: This year's ARTini wouldn't be possible without our sponsors and especially our Title Sponsors for 2013 Clarkes Jewelers.  The wonderful folks at Clarkes are super excited to be joining our list of sponsors this year and to celebrate they've decided to give BAC's supporters a HUGE opportunity.  For a $25 donation to the Bossier Arts Council you can be entered for a chance to win a $5,000 shopping spree at Clarkes*.  And to celebrate we are throwing in a free chance to win when you donate $100.  That's right 5 chances to win a $5,000 shopping spree for $100 donation.  A limited number of tickets will be sold so be sure to call 741-8310 today to purchase your ticket or swing by the Bossier Arts Council (630 Barksdale Blvd, Bossier City), Clarkes Jewelers (4847 Line Ave, Shreveport), or CC & Company (2151 Airline Dr., Bossier City).

RESTAURANT SHOUT OUT:  This week we would like to give a "shout out" to Texas Street Steakhouse in Bossier City for their participation in 2013 Artini!  On Tuesday the 12th from 5:30-8pm we be giving our "thanks" back by visiting this classy joint for drinks and eats.  So be sure to stop by Texas Street at 3015 E.

FUND UPDATE: Many of you may not know that besides being our BIGGEST FUNDRAISER this is also our ONLY FUNDRAISER.  That's right the money earned from Artini goes to supplement the cost of all our programming including education.  Our Education Coordinator Robin Jones does a variety of projects but one that is near and dear to her heart as well as the entire staff is the Budding Artist Association.  This "JR Arts Council" is made up of 10 high school students who plan, promote, and execute their own arts related activities.  Through the Budding Arts Association we teach life skills about commitment to your community, leadership development, and teamwork.  Some upcoming projects they have planned is a band competition at our March 30th Spring Art Walk, a Film Festival in April, and Poetry and Paint night in June.
