Jeremy Price: [00:00:02] It means a lot. Just never expected to be doing this. It's a gift God gave me and I can give that back and then that helps. Might make someone else use their gift. You might just help someone get through a night or inspire them to be an artist. You know, if it changes one person's day, that's the only reason I really do it.
Brady Renard: [00:00:02] Thanks for joining us on Louisiana's playground podcast, your roadmap to all things Lake Charles, Louisiana. I'm Brady Renard.
Anna Strider: [00:00:30] And I'm Anna Strider, we're excited to have you here for episode six of Louisiana's playground, giving you the tools, you need to create your perfect Southwest Louisiana itinerary.
Brady Renard: [00:00:39] It's been a lot of fun here, bringing you the experiences of the area up to this point and I think we've got another great episode combined with another great Envie Eats. We’ll talk to Jeremy Price, he's a local muralist here in Lake Charles. He's done a lot of big-time murals all over the city, whether that's in La Bears or on the side of a couple of big establishments here in downtown. It's a fun eye-opening conversation talking to him. And we also had our literal plates filled with our Envie Eats segment this week.
Anna Strider: [00:01:09] Our Envie Eats segment is one that we do each episode where we go to a restaurant, Brady and I, and we order up some of the most delicious food on the menu and then we give you all some information about it. About what the restaurants like what you can order and why. It is so special to us here in the community.
Brady Renard: [00:01:27] Yeah, I know what you're thinking. It's a tough job but somebody's got to do it.
Anna Strider: [00:01:30] Exactly. And we're the lucky ones who get to do it. This week for our Envie Eats segment, we went to a near and dear spot to us here on the visit Lake Charles team and to the community truly, we went to Mama Reta's Kitchen.
Brady Renard: [00:01:44] and Miss Reta Derrigan is really and should be a national treasure. She's definitely a regional treasure up to this point. A staple in the community, someone that was born and raised in Lake Charles and has continued to make it her home, obviously. Even once she had to leave during the hurricanes and she's back and better than ever.
Anna Strider: [00:02:05] You know when you talk to Mama Reta, she just comes alive. She brings so much energy and love and that is what she prepares her soul food with. And what's really cool about this new restaurant, like Brady said, she left after the hurricane and has come back to Lake Charles and opened her new location in her childhood home.
Brady Renard: [00:02:25] They completely gutted and remodeled and changed every aspect of the front of the house, from the front porch where she said she used to sit when it was covered, to now what it is, now where it's a drive-thru around and you have a pickup window in the front. It really is a unique experience coming to order and getting your food from Mama Reta's Kitchen.
Anna Strider: [00:02:45] And the food that you're coming to order there is something that you can't get everywhere else. Mama Reta really prides herself and her team on producing food that brings you back to your childhood memories for a lot of the community around here. She has items on the menu including black-eyed peas, candied yams, fried and smothered okra, fried chicken, fried seafood. She's got a little bit of every on the menu and it is just so rich in flavor.
I can tell you when we walked up to the pickup window to what our dish, I mean when the food comes out in the Styrofoam dishes, the smell is just overwhelming of just the rich flavor and it's hard not to just open the box and eat it right there on our front porch
Brady Renard: [00:03:26] Yeah and that's something that you had mentioned, she takes pride in, is bringing that type of home-cooked meal feel. The Sunday meal at your grandmother's house - that's what she wants to give you. I mean, everyone calls her Mama Reta for a reason. She delivers, I think, on that goal. For me, I saw fried pork chops on the menu, it's a newer item that she started to release, so I had to order it with the black-eyed peas over rice, some cornbread, and some fried okra and God, it was so good. It was a huge pork chop, well-seasoned, it was fried to perfection.
The black-eyed peas are so good, you dabble a little hot sauce on it and it's just kind of like eating red beans and rice. It's just a little bit different. Black-eyed peas are a little more salty, but so, so good with the gravy that it kind of creates. And then the fried okra; so crispy, so fragrant, so delicious as well. And then, she of course makes such a good cornbread.
Every time I've ever been to Mama Reta’s, she nails it out of the park. So consistent, so good made with so much love, and she's just such a light in the community that you can't help but smile when you have the conversation with her making the order. I just love the restaurant, and I just love Mama Reta.
Anna Strider: [00:04:35] I have to say, I love Mama Reta's. Well, it was my first time meeting Mama Reta that I've been to the restaurant a number of times, and she has everything that everyone described and so much more. Mama Reta, of course, has classics on the menu, and then she has a special deal that you can get Monday through Friday and that is, it comes with an entrée, rice and beans of some hash, and rice and gravy. Give your cornbread or roll option. They always come with a cake which is a staple with every meal. And then one of the delicious sides that we were talking about earlier, as far as the smothered cabbage or black-eyed peas, the okra, the yams.
There's just so many different options to choose from. When we went, I got the baked chicken with red beans and rice, which I got to say I've been looking for a delicious red beans and rice and this hit the spot for me. And the cornbread is just so fluffy and rich, you don't even need to smother and butter because of everything else that's on the plate.
Brady Renard: [00:05:28] Yeah, you just dip that cornbread into those beans or maybe drop some hot sauce on it too. That's how I enjoy it. And you know, we didn't get to enjoy it there because it is just to pick up a drive-through window only. So we took our food and we decided to go downtown on the lakefront. We found a nice little picnic table and kind of sat there, laid out the spread and enjoyed it there because this isn't the type of food that you can kind of eat in your car. This is a home-cooked, heavy grandmother, “Oh, you haven't eaten in a while, you haven't eaten in one hour” grandma meal.
Anna Strider: [00:06:01] Mama Reta's does serve up classic fried chicken baskets with onion rings and French fries, so you can get it on the go and hop in your car and get right back on the interstate. It's really convenient there. But we do have so many great outdoor spaces to take a moment, stretch your legs and just enjoy not only the meal but the beautiful scenery that we have here in Lake Charles. So, head on over to Mama Reta's, pick up the daily special and tell us what you think.
Brady Renard: [00:06:28] From a terrific meal to a terrific guest, we welcome on Jeremy Price. He's an award-winning muralist here in Southwest Louisiana with works all over the state as well in states as Michigan, Texas, Oregon, California, and more, plus private collections worldwide. In addition, he was named the area's Best Artist by Land Yacht magazine for the last three years in a row. You spend a few minutes downtown, you will be sure to see his works from the breath mural to the grapes on cottons, as well as the restoration of the Walgreens mural near the corner market. His artistic flair has given a pop of color in the area and now will bring that inspiration to the podcast. Welcome to the show, Jeremy.
Jeremy Price: [00:07:05] Thanks. I’m excited to be here.
Anna Strider: [00:07:07] We’re excited to have you here. Southwest Louisiana is known for so many great things. I know today we're talking about some of the public art around downtown in our community, so what better way to get started than to know you a little bit?
Brady Renard: [00:07:18] As we do each episode, we'll ask you questions to better get to know you and better get your feel of how you enjoy Southwest Louisiana and what better way with our juxtaposing questions. You ready?
Jeremy Price: [00:07:29] Yeah.
Brady Renard: [00:07:29] Crawfish or gumbo?
Jeremy Price: [00:07:31] Gumbo. My mom and my grandma makes really good seafood gumbo.
Brady Renard: [00:07:36] Specifically their gumbo.
Jeremy Price: [00:07:38] Yeah.
Brady Renard: [00:07:39] Poolside or beachside?
Jeremy Price: [00:07:41] Beachside.
Brady Renard: [00:07:42] Why?
Jeremy Price: [00:07:43] Get to smell the fresh air and get to hear the waves.
Brady Renard: [00:07:46] For sure. Concert or comedy show?
Jeremy Price: [00:07:48] Concert.
Brady Renard: [00:07:49] Big music fan?
Jeremy Price: [00:07:50] Yeah.
Anna Strider: [00:07:51] What particular genre?
Jeremy Price: [00:07:53] A lot. Everything except for a few things.
Anna Strider: [00:07:56] Well now that we've gotten to know you a little bit, we're going to dive into the topic at hand, which is public art and murals here in Southwest Louisiana. And I know that there are many of them across our downtown area and across the parish. And you are one of the main artists who's helped put southwest Louisiana on the map as far as that type of art in our community.
Jeremy Price: [00:08:15] You know, if it changes one person's day, that's the only reason I really do it. The first one, to breathe one, I usually tell this story. There's this lady that used to hang around downtown that – she used to be kind of upset with everyone. We'd be skateboarding and she's yelling profanities at us or anybody could be walking down the street. And her special line was, “here comes another potential idiot,” and she's like yelling. She's mad all the time.
In the morning, I finished that mural. I mean, I've been working on it all night. It's probably 5:30/6:00 in the morning, pretty silent. And I hear something behind me and I look and it's her, she's coming up probably 70 yards away. I'm just like, “oh my here she comes”. She's about to rail me about this art. And it was kind of the first art like that put up publicly.
She came over there, just preparing myself and she came over there and was just so sweet. Like came up talking about how much she loved it and I think she gave me a hug, pulled out like one of those ditto sheets. She was like, “here, I have a prayer card for you.” Gave me a prayer card. So that's the reason I was like, “man, this is kind of important”. Like that lady's entire spirit changed. So, it's for those type of people, because anybody can look at it. You don't have to go in a building or buy anything. It's going to make an impact if it's true art.
Anna Strider: [00:09:35] You mentioned that the brief piece was one of your first pieces. How did you get to the point to be able to put a piece of art on a building? What was your starting place?
Jeremy Price: [00:09:45] I had painted a few kind-of graffiti logos inside businesses and my first mural was in a one of my friend’s son's playroom was like a princess and the frog. And then this exposure magazine, they had that project coming up to paint over that wall because people were vandalizing it and stuff. They were looking for someone, my friend told them about me, then we all became friends and I did a sketch and it went from there.
Brady Renard: [00:10:11] So what's that process like for you now? How long is in between when someone reaches out and says, “hey, let's get this commission to you,” kind of being finished? How long typically is that process? And what's that process like?
Jeremy Price: [00:10:24] It's all different. I guess the biggest factor is how serious someone is, and then the weather. So, I mean if I'm not backed up and they say, hey, I want a mural now and they're serious about it, whether they have an idea they want or not, sometimes people just want me to do whatever. I can do it really quick. I would say that average time for a pretty big mural could be a week or two, it just depends on weather and a lot of things.
Brady Renard: [00:10:48] I know you've mentioned before, you like to find ways to challenge yourself when doing some and there are some jobs that aren't a challenging job, that's not what the job is. But there are times like, I know the grapes on the side of Cottons where you challenge yourself to be creative, what does your inspiration come for works like that?
Jeremy Price: [00:11:04] I don't know where it comes from. Usually, it just comes, you know, if I'm listening to right music or some ideas will pop up, or if the person commissioning it. Sometimes if they don't really know, I'll ask them to give me five things they're thinking about, and I'll use that and sometimes things just change. It depends on how much freedom I have. Like those walls on Broad Street, one of them was supposed to be a whole different thing and I drew it all. I had the whole drawing done with spray paint and I was like, “no, I'm going to do the bedroom thing.” It's kind of in the moment, or like at Luna on that mural, there was a huge 14 feet tall Kildee on the wall outside and it didn't last maybe six hours I painted over. It was something else.
Anna Strider: [00:11:44] You just saw the finished work and had a different vision for the space?
Jeremy Price: [00:11:48] I guess so, or sometimes I just need to do something to get inspired or to open up the channel to get what really needs to be done, which isn't good for people that are watching it because, and I usually tell people “It’s going to get ugly,” but it always works out. That's probably most artists that see a big wall, that's probably what freaks him out the most. Because even on a small canvas, everybody's gets to a point where like want to give up or throw it away or something. You just have to push through that and it happens.
Brady Renard: [00:12:20] And I can imagine that daunting feeling where you're creating something from nothing? And so, for you it seems like the cathartic release is create anything because you can always fix it.
Jeremy Price: [00:12:32] Yeah, you can. That's the beauty of paint. Like you can always paint over it. The only thing is usually like everybody can see all my mistakes and it could be stressful but I just turn my music up.
Brady Renard: [00:12:46] But there's a certain beauty to that too, right?
Jeremy Price: [00:12:48] Yeah. That's why I don't really like doing sketches because I feel like if I do a sketch; for one, I'm bored with it because now I've already drawn it; two, and now it's not like the idea of it being created where it's supposed to be created.
Brady Renard: [00:13:01] That's an interesting take. And I know the most recent piece there on Broad Street. What's the meeting the symbolization of what you have? I know they're all kind of connected to Van Gogh, correct?
Jeremy Price: [00:13:11] Yeah. Really? Behind all of them. It's just I guess Beauty in the struggle or hope in the darkness just kind of like I mean Van Gogh had a pretty rough I don't know how to say –
Brady Renard: [00:13:23] “No pun intended” go at it?
Jeremy Price: [00:13:24] Yeah. Yeah. And he still made some really pretty pictures, but it doesn't mean his life was beautiful or anything.
Anna Strider: [00:13:31] So when you're somewhere in your painting one of these murals or pieces of art, are you just in the zone? You do it all on your own? Do you do it at night? Like how do you, how are you in that space when you're creative and you're actually painting?
Jeremy Price: [00:13:46] I guess the way my process is, I'm in the zone, but I'm also usually creating on the spot. I like it at night because it's quiet. It's kind of like I'm more intimate with the city, which is weird. I guess it's more to me, it's like authentic and I like surprising people. I don't know if it really happens, but they might drive down the road, they just drove there yesterday and then they drive to work the next morning. Like where did that come from?
Brady Renard: [00:14:09] Speaking of some of that, as someone that grew up here, having your art displayed publicly, creating a pop of life, a pop of color in places that you visited as a kid and continue to visit as an adult. What does that mean to you?
Jeremy Price: [00:14:24] It means a lot. Just never expected to be doing this. It means a lot though. Like it's my friends like it, my parents like it. My son will, you know, the ones that are still around when he gets older. He can be like my dad did that, my niece see stuff at her school or my teachers.
Brady Renard: [00:14:42] Well I know you mentioned in previous interviews that you've done that you were inspired by public art by street art there and in the dairy section of a grocery store for your art now. To likely inspire future generations, whether it be your niece or even your son, you know, that kind of adds to it too. I'm sure.
Jeremy Price: [00:15:02] I don't think about a lot I guess. So it's a gift God gave me and I can give that back and then that helps. It might make someone else use their gift what it doesn't have to be art. So I guess if it feels like an accomplishment. You might just help someone get through the night or help someone inspire them to be an artist or like –
Brady Renard: [00:15:19] Not yell at skateboarding kids on the sidewalk.
Jeremy Price: [00:15:21] Yeah.
Anna Strider: [00:15:23] Yeah. And I know just art and communities across the country and really the world are becoming so popular and the place where the community can tell its story like you've been able to do, especially in downtown. All these different places and you're being expression and sharing your passions, but they all have a meaning to find inspiration. And I think that's part of what travel is and why we go to different places and why we come home to those places as well. So that's what art's bringing to so many communities.
Jeremy Price: [00:15:51] Yeah, for sure. And we can kind of be like, hey, we're, we're cool too.
Brady Renard: [00:15:57] Yeah. Which is always fun, right?
Anna Strider: [00:15:59] I think there's so many different perspectives that come together here and the community itself with, we promote so many different events to, to try and bring people in and allow the artists to have that place to shine and that their art to be displayed, whether it's through paintings or have and made jewelry or sculptures. There really is a community that host events and different opportunities for those unique artists to showcase themselves, which I think very much makes like Charles in the area special.
Jeremy Price: [00:16:32] Yeah. And it's getting a lot better. We have a lot of events; it seems like now there's some kind of festival every few months.
Anna Strider: [00:16:40] And there's vendors, art vendors, all of those events for the most part and they come from many different backgrounds and works of art, which I think is really unique.
Brady Renard: [00:16:52] For you with that, have you seen public art and street art kind of gain a little momentum here? It looks like there are murals kind of popping up every few months. I know you've done a few of them as well. things like Gulf Coast mural project has been in here. We just had one completed, down the road in downtown as well.
Jeremy Price: [00:17:11] Yeah, it's definitely taken off. We need like some kind of app of like a mural.
Anna Strider: [00:17:17] Don't worry, Brady. And I will be working on that in 2023.
Jeremy Price: [00:17:21] Nice.
Anna Strider: [00:17:22] Little secret there.
Jeremy Price: [00:17:23] Nice. Yeah, there's a lot. There's, I mean it's, it's all over the place. But if you looked at Charles, say 10 years ago to now it's really blown up and it's changed how we look. We just look cooler
Anna Strider: [00:17:38] When you look cool, you feel cool.
Jeremy Price: [00:17:39] Yeah. Yeah, people can go around and take pictures. They might go inside the place and spend money. Maybe it helps people walk around a little bit more or something.
Brady Renard: [00:17:49] Create an identity?
Jeremy Price: [00:17:50] Yeah, yeah.
Anna Strider: [00:17:51] Truly an impact on the community and those businesses, especially since a lot of the art that you've done is at local businesses. I know you've mentioned Luna and the Broad Street one which is on the side of one of the antique shops in town.
Jeremy Price: [00:18:04] Yeah.
Anna Strider: [00:18:05] And there was one at Tony's pizza for a while.
Jeremy Price: [00:18:08] Yeah, it's still there.
Anna Strider: [00:18:09] Okay. What are some of the other ones you've done around the community?
Jeremy Price: [00:18:12] The grapes one on the side of Cotton’s downtown.
Anna Strider: [00:18:16] Did you do the one at Crying Eagle?
Jeremy Price: [00:18:18] Yeah, inside. That was really cool.
Brady Renard: [00:18:21] And my favorite one that you've done, the one that I think is probably most representative of what our area is, is the one actually inside La Bears. Can you tell us a little bit about that one?
Jeremy Price: [00:18:32] That was the most important one I think I've done. You know it was after the storm. The whole hotel was filled with just cops and first responders and everybody's kind of just getting things together. And that one took, I think, a little under a week. They contacted me and they're kind of like, “we want a mural.” They didn't tell me any real thing. Besides, it was Southwest Louisiana strong and it was supposed to be kind of temporary.
I did some different processes on that. It worked out great. And then in the end they're like, we're going to leave it up indefinitely and it's just cool.
Brady Renard: [00:19:10] So if someone's coming in from out of town and you have to make a list of some must-see art in town where a couple of those stops you think, obviously one in La Bears, to see the piece that really is your heart and soul?
Jeremy Price: [00:19:24] Yeah. There the stuff in Luna is that's kind of always going to be my favorite. Tony's is a cool and it's kind of represented, you know, there's a cowboy and an alligator on it. Panorama - yeah, there's some graffiti wall upstairs there. The wings on the side of Buffi's Peaux Boys is a good photo op.
Anna Strider: [00:19:45] I've managed to get a photo there.
Jeremy Price: [00:19:48] Nice.
Anna Strider: [00:19:49] With the dog as well.
Jeremy Price: [00:19:49] Nice.
Brady Renard: [00:19:50] We also sat on the stools outside of your new one.
Jeremy Price: [00:19:52] Yeah.
Brady Renard: [00:19:52] The bench in the stool, and that's something there to having that you can interact with. It seems like that's an important piece of what you're doing now to.
Jeremy Price: [00:20:01] Yeah, definitely. Those are probably cooler because of the interactive elements, and then it's Van Gogh. Originally when we talked about it, she's like, “I want starry night” and I was like, “no, I ain't doing a starry night.” Maybe I'll do like an underwater starry night, I'm not doing. And then I got there and while I was pretty big, so “all right, I'll do a starry night, but I'm going to change it and make it Louisiana be the little village and stuff.
Anna Strider: [00:20:28] With the brown pelicans thereon.
Jeremy Price: [00:20:29] Yeah, yeah, that was an idea. I just ran into some friends at Walmart and “you should put pelican” because I was trying to figure out what to put instead of the cypress tree or whatever that is. And so, I don't know, people kind of get to be a part of it.
Anna Strider: [00:20:44] We've talked a lot about some of the murals that you have done in the artwork. What's on the horizon? Do you have any big projects are coming up in town or that you might have word of?
Jeremy Price: [00:20:57] Sort of. We have one that's supposed to happen at some point. I don't know when another interactive one and I just got a call last week, I think for one right, by L. S. U., and that will be really, really cool.
Brady Renard: [00:21:13] Is there something that you've always wanted to do that is your biggest goal of bringing maybe some type of piece of art or something that you would love to see here in the area?
Jeremy Price: [00:21:26] I'd really like to see a place somewhere in town. I don't know where, maybe you'd have to be at each school or something, but a place where you jury like art students if you had like some type of scholarship to where one student from each art department every year gets paid to put a design on the wall every semester. I mean they could repaint over another student gets. I don't know if I'm answering that question.
Brady Renard: [00:21:52] So for you, the art is never as important as the inspiration that it, it creates.
Jeremy Price: [00:21:58] Right, yeah. The art has to keep being made. I mean there's people before us that have art up and they don't want to climb up on a scaffold anymore. So like Fred Starks murals inspired me. So, whenever I don't want to climb a ladder anymore, there has to be somebody that takes it seriously and my hope is that they're like making a career out of it.
Anna Strider: [00:22:23] We want to foster a community that believes in the artwork and the impact that makes and believing in those people who are going to bring it up and continue that forward.
Jeremy Price: [00:22:32] Yeah, yeah, continue it and make it better. I mean, that's what anybody that is really trying to do something wants is for the next person to be better than them.
Anna Strider: [00:22:41] What would you call your title? Like what would you call yourself?
Jeremy Price: [00:22:45] A muralist? That's what I'm known for. But I mean I've done all kinds of different art. Some people, I won't tell them this, but they call me the mural man and it's not, I mean –
Brady Renard: [00:22:56] The mural man.
Jeremy Price: [00:22:57] There's like several other people that paint murals in town.
Brady Renard: [00:23:00] Yeah, but the mural man is pretty good.
Jeremy Price: [00:23:02] It's pretty good. But it's kind of –
Anna Strider: [00:23:04] Own it. If they gave it to you.
Brady Renard: [00:23:07] That's a Halloween costume now for the rest of your life. Just mural man.
Jeremy Price: [00:23:10] Yeah.
Anna Strider: [00:23:11] Go get a white t-shirt and paint it.
Brady Renard: [00:23:13] I was thinking to get a white poster board behind you and paint it. Or just get an image of one of your other ones behind you and like a superhero costume. Your mural man.
Jeremy Price: [00:23:22] I have a pink Super Grover cape. Yeah.
Anna Strider: [00:23:28] That's perfect. If you'd like to visit any of Jeremy’s art in town, you'll be able to find out where they're located on our website, visit lakecharles.org/podcast.
