Exploring the arts in Ruston
I grew up in Monroe and currently reside with my husband and two dogs in our home, my refuge, in West Monroe. Though it may seem odd for a non-Ruston resident to deliver the local news, I am no stranger to this town, as I attended Louisiana Tech University’s School of Art, during which I lived here for a stint.
That was nearly 10 years ago. Back then, there wasn’t much to do here on a Saturday night but go to Wal-Mart and wander about the aisles, or eat at the Huddle House, where I would devour a mound of hash browns and drink coffee all night.
