5th Annual Show

What It Is

The Art from the Heart show is an opportunity to showcase the hidden artistic talents of the faculty, staff, and students of LSU Health Shreveport and University Health. The Health Sciences Library and Medical Communications co-sponsor this annual event to celebrate the diverse and creative community on our campus. Any affiliate of the institution is eligible to submit any form of the visual and decorative arts including but not limited to painting, sculpting, printmaking, photography, pottery, jewelry, computer-generated art, and fabric art. Not only will employees and students be able to display their artistic ability, but they will also have the opportunity to sell their creations at this venue.

Best in Show

In celebration of the 5th Annual Show, a "Best in Show" prize will be awarded. Viewers will vote for their favorite work, and the artist of the winning piece will receive a $50 gift card to purchase art supplies at Hobby Lobby.
