The North Central Louisiana Arts Council (NCLAC) and the Pine Hills Advocacy Center are pleased to announce an artful renovation of the Pine Hills Advocacy Center. Artists Melanie Douthit and Linda Snider-Ward, representing the Union Parish Arts Council, designed and executed a mural in the Center in March. The mural is part of a multi-room project, to be completed by several arts groups from around the region. NCLAC is working as a liaison between the Advocacy Center and area artists, in order to give the space a “facelift” for its clients.
