Our Front Porch

Our Front Porch is a traveling Arkansas landscape art show that is accompanied by a complete front porch with rocking chairs for visiting and "porchy" activities. Video and audio installations share stories, anecdotes and songs from the people who inhabit Arkansas. There is no "other" here

Our Front Porch promotes tolerance and hospitality and is an outreach project of Traveling Arts Fiesta, a 501 (c)3 nonprofit organization.
