With a studio school and a children’s theater within its walls, the Arkansas Arts Center is certainly much more than just a rather fine art museum. Founded in 1961, the Center has expanded its mission to support a number of artistic endeavors within the broad range of visual and performing arts traditions. On the Center’s website, visitors can learn not only about visiting the museum itself, but also about its extensive holdings and its community outreach programs. In terms of their online content, “The Collection” section is definitely the place to start. Visitors can view selections from their various special collections, which include contemporary baskets and pottery, and then continue on by searching their online collection. Currently, this collection contains several thousand works, which range from works by Will Barnet to pieces by the Post-Impressionist Paul Signac. Visitors looking for specific works can search the collection by date, object field, or artist.
