1978, a team of scientists was granted unprecedented access to the Shroud, the purported burial cloth of Jesus. Over the course of five days, the team of scientists and photographers worked non-stop, using various techniques, including infrared spectrometry and thermography, as well as sticky tape samples to analyze the cloth.
In April, the Shreveport Regional Arts Council revealed the theme of this year’s Christmas in the Sky: Sky Broadway. Christmas in the Sky is the biennial fund-raiser produced by the Arts Council. Hosted at Louisiana Downs, the building is transformed to immerse guests into whatever the theme is each year.
