School is officially back in session here in Shreveport, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t still plenty going on in arts and entertainment. 

From new murals making a debut in the city to where to go if you’re looking for a new place to eat outside of Shreveport to all about a nonprofit looking to feed and educate the community, here’s what you might have missed.
