At 5pm today, the galleries of the Arkansas Arts Center will close in MacArthur Park. They will not reopen until sometime in the first half of 2022.
While Arkansas Arts Center programming will continue in its Riverdale location and at various partner sites, the galleries, as they have been configured since February 2000, will be changed forever. When the Arkansas Arts Center reopens in MacArthur Park, there will be new gallery spaces.
The current exhibits are:
- Pop! Out of the Vault: Andy Warhol’s Little Red Book
- Then, Now, Next: Reimagining the Arkansas Arts Center
- 58th Young Arkansas Artists Exhibition
- 61st Annual Delta Exhibition
Today also marks the final chance to eat at Watercolor in the Park. Though the famous Petit and Keet Sunday Brunch will continue at the namesake restaurant, this will be the final time to enjoy it in MacArthur Park.
Museum School classes and youth summer programming will continue in MacArthur Park through the remainder of the summer sessions. The Museum School will start the Autumn Quarter of classes in the new Riverdale location in September.
