From the Director

The Next Executive Director of the AAC, Dr. Victoria RamirezFall, 2020

As 2020 draws to a close, I have been reflecting on what this past year has meant for the Arkansas Arts Center. This has been an unusual year in so many ways – but it has also offered opportunities for learning, growth, and innovation that we have never had before.

Next year is set to be another historic year for the Arkansas Arts Center. In 2021, we will continue to offer innovative programming – both virtually and in-person, when we can – while preparing to open a brand new museum in MacArthur Park in 2022. As we look toward the opening of the new building, we will take with us everything we have learned throughout this past year.

Of course, none of the things we have accomplished over the past year would have been possible without the support of members like you. On behalf of our board and staff, thank you for continuing to support the arts in your community.

In MacArthur Park, the new building continues to take shape. The signature concrete roofline is finished, revealing the full expanse of the building. The gallery wing has a new brick façade. And the floor-to-ceiling glass is being installed as I write this. The Grand Opening of the new Arkansas Arts Center will be here before we know it. Follow our progress at .

Thank you for all of your support this year. I wish you the happiest of holidays and all the best in 2021.

Dr. Victoria Ramirez
