The Hammond Regional Arts Center is featuring a 3-D experience in the Marjorie Morrison Sculpture Biennial “Movement, Motion & Rhythm,” which runs through Jan. 29.

Artist Pat Macaluso was asked to curate this year’s sculpture invitational at the center, 217 E. Thomas St. She has brought in professional artwork by sculptors Anne Boudreau, Ben Diller, Carlos Zervigon, Donald Kolberg, Eugene Koss, Maggie McConnel, Martin Needom and Mia Kaplan.

The biennial honors Marjorie Morrison, wife of former U.S. Rep. Jimmy Morrison and longtime advocate of the arts.

Morrison was a key player among the original members of the arts center, formerly the Hammond Cultural Foundation, who helped get the nonprofit organization off the ground 33 years ago. Morrison served as the organization’s first president and has spent countless hours promoting the arts in Louisiana. She is now a lifetime member of the center’s board of directors.

In 2010, Louisiana Public Broadcasting honored Morrison for her advocacy and philanthropy by recognizing her as a “Louisiana Legend.” To continue to celebrate her efforts, the Arts Center hosts a sculpture exhibition every other year in her honor.

Admission is free. For more information, call (985) 542-7113 or visit hammondarts.org/home.
