Line, Form, Fashion! The Art of Style

Special Exhibition • 1 September - 19 November 2023

As Christian Dior once said, "Even when there are no more secrets, fashion remains a mystery." This fall, the R.W. Norton Art Gallery invites you to enjoy Line, Form, Fashion! The Art of Style. This exhibition features 40+ works of fine and poster art ranging from Jane Atché and René Gruau to Michel Canetti and Christian Dior. 

In addition to these pieces from the museum’s permanent collection, five Shreveport professional photographers have been asked to create work inspired by this exhibition to be displayed alongside the museum's artwork.

Featured Photographers:

Tray Cooper

Britt Elizabeth

Ivy B. French

James Michael LeBlanc

Jennifer Robison 


Sketchy Business: Magic, Mischief, & Monsters

Special Exhibition • 1 October - 12 November 2023

Sketchy Business: Magic, Mischief, & Monsters is an ink-tastic exhibition inspired by #Inktober, a social media drawing challenge organized by artist Jake Parker. However, us being us, we decided to put our own twist on the challenge by asking artists to create works inspired by a list of words built around the theme "Monsters, Mischief, & Monsters.” 

This is an ever-evolving show with the exhibition growing , literally, day by day throughout the month of October. Each morning, an original drawing created by a different artist using that day’s prompt, will be displayed in the museum and on social media. By the end of the month, the exhibition will be complete! Make sure to follow along and see the amazing works created by local artists for this one-of-a-kind show. 


Melodious Masterpieces

Do you hear music when you look at a painting? Does a specific scene touch your heart and make you hum a melody? Well, if so, we ask you to join our amazing social media followers who helped curate Spotify playlists full of the songs they hear when looking at pieces from the Norton's permanent collection.

Be sure to follow us on SpotifyInstagram, and Facebook for more music challenges.
