SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - Shreveport's newest public mural was unveiled this week. Located at 629 Spring Street, it's the first large-scale mural to be completed in Shreveport-Bossier in 12 years.

Titled "A Call to Action," the mural is a 75'x20', full-wall acrylic mural by artist Ali Bahler. The display references the cultural heritage of the city and all of the festivals, live music and gaming.

The mural was made public during a news conference hosted by the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau along with the Shreveport Regional Arts Council.

"Public art is a means of engaging our visitors and creating a lasting, positive impression of Shreveport-Bossier's cityscape," says Stacy Brown, president of the tourist bureau.

"Call to Action" is the first mural completed in Shreveport-Bossier since the completion of the "Once in a Millennium Moon" mural on the AT&T building in 2001.
