9th Annual Comic Con

















Come view an exhibit where imagination knows no bounds as talented kids from the Livingston Parish community display their artistic prowess. Our young artists have brilliantly brought to life an array of comic-inspired characters, each with a unique story to tell. This Youth Art Display is made possible through a meaningful collaboration with the Livingston Parish Library and the Arts Council of Livingston Parish.

“New Year! New Beginning!”


January - February 2024

Reception Saturday, January 20th

 10:30am – 1pm.

Year in Review

As we review 2023, I reflect on the challenge shared with


at the beginning of the year:

Inspire  *  Create *   Connect
through the incredible power of Art!
That is exactly what we set out to do in Livingston Parish.
The ACLP is here to support and Inspire emerging artists, help
them Create lasting footprints and Connect the creative culture

all across our parish.

This goal was achieved by exhibits, local events, classes,
performances, markets, camps and telling the story of the Arts
Council. This year was a record year of giving to students in our
parish. Our Board gave scholarship dollars towards every gifted
art student in our parish. We supported our Art Teachers by
opening up our supply closets. Hopefully, with those actions we
connected with more students in our parish, allowed them to
create, and connected the power of the arts in Livingston Parish.

As my term ends, thank you for allowing me to serve as President
of this organization. Our President Elect is Amber Hilburn. I am
excited about the things Amber has planned for 2024. I look
forward to working with her and serving on the board under her
guidance and leadership. Your other officers for the new year are
Gayle Cothell, Vice President, Judye Jackson Averette, Treasurer

and Cherie Ducote Breaux, Secretary.


On behalf of our Board of Directors,
thank you for an incredible year. 
We wish you a Happy New Year.
