Shreveport author and illustrator William Joyce will receive a prestigious media award Thursday that coincides with the premiere of his new animated feature film that will debut in Shreveport.
Joyce will receive a Christopher Award in New York. His book, "The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore," will be recognized alongside other books, films, and television/cable shows that live up to the highest values of the human spirit, according to the Christophers.
A fine art photography exhibit opening Jan. 17 at artspace in Shreveport is akin to a love letter to the voluptuous woman. That’s how Mollie Corbett describes her third gallery show, "Dangerous Curves." It captures the beauty of eight, full-figured Shreveport-Bossier women through nude and semi-nude portraits. Corbett said she sees herself and many other women in this show.
“It’s odd and ironic because so many women are walking around with these dimensions, and yet they’re not being recognized as beautiful in the mainstream media.”
