Acclaimed songwriter, artist, author, and lecturer Bobby Bridger visits the University of Louisiana Monroe during the week of September 6-9.
Bridger says he developed his love of the West "by accident," and has turned that love into a diverse career.
"If you want to find something that's gonna keep you occupied for a long time -- the American West can do that," says Bridger. He goes on to describes the West as "wherever the tall grass grows."
Bridger comes to ULM to share his knowledge with his Alma Mater in the form of Master Classes in the both the Communication and History Departments. He also showcases his artwork at ULM's upcoming art Crawl in Walker Hall on Thursday September 8 from 5-7 p.m.
Later that evening he visits the School of Visual and Performing Arts for a concert in the Emy-Lou Beidenharn Recital Hall at 7:30.
