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 artists and residents helped us create the line element through a series of community workshops at which we asked what if you could construct your whole world out of a continuous line? Our concept offers a flexible and open-ended environment that is a refuge for creativity. Funding comes from a National Endowment for the Arts creative placemaking grant and will serve as an example for artist led economic development.

Blessing Hancock owns Skyrim Studio Inc which focuses on site specific sculpture. She utilizes her BFA in Sculpture and MLA in Landscape Architecture to create innovative work for public spaces.
