A new mural; Night at the Museum; Art on bricks
Here’s a look at what’s going on in Northwest Arkansas sponsored by 7Up Mini Can Variety Pack.
The award-winning Unexpected Project in Fort Smith brings a new mural to downtown. The Unexpected just announced that artist Ben Eine will bring an original new piece of wall art to downtown with a grant from the Division of Arkansas Heritage. The work, curated by the Justkids creative house, will be located on Garrison Avenue and work will begin on October 16. Ben’s work will serve as a centerpiece for mental health awareness.
On Thursday, October 14, Art on the Bricks at Rogers is offering something for everyone. The theme for the October Art Walk is “Haunts & Harvest”. Attendees will experience family-friendly indoor and outdoor pop-up art exhibits at more than 20 downtown Rogers locations and are encouraged to wear Halloween and cosplay costumes. You will see visual art and hear live music throughout the event. Start of activities at 4.30 p.m.
This weekend, you are invited to celebrate Justice Parker’s 183rd birthday at the Fort Smith History Museum! Volunteers will lead a session in the “Judge Parker Courtroom” where the “Big Bad Wolf” will argue his case for why he blew up the house. In turn, “The Three Pigs” will take the witness stand. The children will decide who was right and who was wrong. Cupcakes and refreshments will be served after all this choice! The trial will take place on Saturday at 1:00 p.m.
Here is something for adults. The Arkansas Air and Military Museum is having an adults-only party and tickets go quickly. Participants will join the ORB Paranormal team who will this year lead the ghost hunt and search for the ever-moving spirits in the museum! Tickets for “Night at the Museum” cost twenty-five dollars for non-members and only fifteen dollars for members. Tickets include dinner and loot.
