City of Ruston ready to kickoff Bulldog Project

RUSTON, La -- - The bulldog project is one of many projects under way kicking off the start of ruston's new cultural district.

Organizers met  at the Historic Fire Station to get input from the community.

They held a discussion on when and where these statues will be made--before they are built and set up around town.

People from around the Ruston community were invited to present their ideas and help iron out the details. 

Rick Godley from 99.3 peach radio attended the meeting and is confident this meeting was able to smooth out the game plan.

"The more you can get in front of this thing and answer as many questions as possible that way you can present it to the community in an understandable way and people are going to buy in," Godley said.

 Bulldog Project organizer, Jessica Slaughter, believes the Bulldog project is a prime opportunity for the arts to bring the people of Ruston together.

"This is just a great opportunity for people to show that they support the arts and tech and Ruston by putting it all together with the bulldog," she said.

Project managers say there are 10 statues total. They will have sponsors bid for the rights to design and set up their own bulldog for all to see.

All sponsorship forms and artist entries are due by June 30th.
