The Arts and Science Center (ASC) opened Arkansas Champion Trees: An Artist’s Journey Thursday, April 10, 2014. Arkansas Champion Trees: An Artist’s Journey features drawings and documentation of champion trees from around the state by Hot Springs artist Linda Williams Palmer. The exhibition combines artwork with short anecdotes and stories to encourage multi-generational conversations and inspire visitors to independently learn more about Arkansas forests, history, art, and science. Barbara Satterfield, Exhibit Project Manager and member of the Arkansas Committee of the National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA), emphasizes the exhibition’s appeal for children, families, students, teachers, and artists: “Our goal is to bring everybody together to enjoy Arkansas’ greatest natural resources—its land and its people.” The exhibition, organized by the Arkansas Committee of NMWA, will remain on display at ASC through May 21, 2014 and will continue its statewide tour through December 2014.
