Caddo Parish Sheriff's painting to help fund dog park
Artwork painted by Caddo Parish Sheriff Steve Prator will be featured at an upcoming event set to raise money to establish a dog park in Shreveport.
Prator's painting portrays Shreveport Mayor Cedric Glover as a giant being tied down by dogs — a reworking of a scene from Gulliver's Travels.
Glover has so far resisted funding the park over other initiatives he has said should take priority.
According to Cynthia Keith, director of the Shreveport Dog Park Alliance, describes Prator's work as a political cartoon.
KSLA TV reports (http://bit.ly/TNuxxS ) that 75 prints of the painting will be sold for a $30 each at a fundraiser set for Saturday afternoon in Shreveport.
