History

The Bossier Arts Council was created in 1980 through a joint effort by a local arts organization and the City of Bossier. The Bossier Arts Council continues to partner with the City in providing excellence in the arts for citizens and visitors. Over the years BAC has grown, focusing on expanding arts opportunities in community theatre, visual arts, festivals and exhibits, arts education for children and adults, public arts, and grants opportunities.

Specific expansion efforts have included 17 murals throughout Bossier, three major sculptures, a metal art zoo, and the Art Annex which provides classroom and meeting space to several art groups and instructors. The past decade has featured some exciting additions to BAC’s programming.
