Artist Lee Spruell latest addition to B&N krewe

Lee Spruell and I met on the set of Dia de los Muertos, the recent exposition at Artspace Shreveport. I am delighted that he has sent in his check to be part of the Feb 08 parade.

Lee was on the Dia planning committe because he is in love with Mexico and its culture. A frequent traveler to Mexico, he brought ideas and materials to the Artspace show and also presented beautifully-costumed youngsters whom he'd taught folkloric dances. His ofrendas to Frida Kahlo was super-colorful and detailed.

Lee and Jerry and Tarama Davenpoprt and I want to present a costume workshop on a Sat morn in January. Drop me an email at if you'd like to join us and trade ideas for costumes that are cheap and easy but imaginative and fun.
