Tech art students assist in Homer service project
Louisiana Tech associate professor of art Nick Bustamante is bringing art to a new forum in north Louisiana with the “Homermural Project.”
Bustamante said the mural will be located in Homer and will represent the parish’s agricultural heritage by featuring cotton wagons going to the cotton gin, as well as other symbolic representations.
“The Homer Colored College is depicted with a portrait of its most famous visiting professor, Dr. George Washington Carver,” Bustamante said. “The dairy industry was prominent in Claiborne Parish as well; the Claiborne Creamery was home to Home-R-Maid ice cream for many years.”
