Louisiana has a large community of artists and art lovers. This fact is an important reason for Louisianans to support the ARTS in our communities. We are known world wide for our beloved French Quarter with its architectural beauty, and the eclectic population it houses and draws: artists, musicians, writers, poets, dancers, art conservators, museum curators, actors, etc. and all those that appreciate these talents. Now if we look into all the communities that make up Louisiana we would find many such areas that foster the ARTS.
