Ruston Cultural District Seeks Artists for “Puppy Project”

Terry Goodyer

Ruston Cultural District (RCD) is seeking area artists to participate in another installation of its “Puppy Project” art initiative. This project is an extension of the popular Bulldog Project, a public art exhibition that launched in September 2018. The Puppy Project will feature 25 miniature bulldog statues that will be used as a canvas for local artists on a first come, first serve basis.

Eligible area artists are invited to enhance one of the 25 miniature solid molded bulldogs for a silent auction event on November 9, 2023. Artists will receive 50% of the proceeds of the sale. The remaining funds will support future projects and programs in the Ruston Cultural District. The official call for artists, including the project guidelines, can be found on the Ruston Cultural District Facebook page -

“We’ve had a great response to the ‘puppies’ by both artists and the community, so we’re very excited to be bringing this project back,” said Amy Stegall, President of the Ruston Cultural District. “There are so many talented artists in North Louisiana, and we love getting to see all the creative ways they use these miniature bulldog statues as their canvases.”

For more information on the Ruston Cultural District and the Puppy Project, please contact Ruston Cultural District President Amy Stegall at 318-251-8647 or
