In Partnership with the Central Arkansas Library System

A selection of works from the Arkansas Arts Center’s extensive collection of contemporary craft objects is on view at 15 Central Arkansas Library System locations.

The partnership between the Arkansas Arts Center and the Central Arkansas Library System, designed to build creative connections between two Central Arkansas cultural organizations, is one of many ways the Arts Center will remain vibrant, accessible and community-oriented while its MacArthur Park building undergoes a transformational renovation.

The partnership with CALS allows the Arts Center to keep a significant portion of its craft collection on view while the building is under construction. Nearly 10% of the collection – 106 works – in total are on view at the 15 CALS branches. Typically, between one and three percent of a museum’s collection is on view at any given time.

Carefully selected for their community relevance, each installation includes works that reference the environment, history and mission of the library branch where they’re located, illustrating the incredible diversity of the Arts Center’s collection of contemporary craft objects.

The installations will also allow library managers to draw inspiration to plan programming or design literary or informational displays alongside the works. These long-term partnerships are envisioned to continue, even after the Arkansas Arts Center’s reopening, scheduled for spring 2022.
