About the Little Rock Culture Vulture

Scott Whiteley Carter is a cultural thinker and planner, muser about museums and music, student of sculpture, theatrical thrill-seeker, photography fanatic, architecture appreciator, major league baseball fan, promoter of the legacy of actor-director (and Little Rock native) Ben Piazza, and encyclopedia of useless knowledge (a sobriquet bequeathed in junior high). This interest in artistic and historic endeavors started in childhood as his parents took him to theatre, concerts, museums, and battlefields and other historic sites.  His fascination with buildings and form started as a child with his Lincoln Logs, Tinker Toys, and Erector Set.  His first camera was a “pocket” camera that would fit in no pocket known to man.

A graduate of Missouri State University, he has worked in arts administration and been the unofficial historian of the City of Little Rock. He has also served on boards of performing arts organizations. Scott is an award-winning poet and has had his artwork (painting and photography) on display at Little Rock City Hall.

When not engaged in cultural endeavors, he is usually pursuing a cup of coffee, a sporting event, or any of the assorted number-based puzzles.

  1. Thanks for sharing your love of sculpture on this site. We won’t be in Little Rock this year at Sculpture at the River Market ~ but wanted to let you know we appreciate Little Rock’s commitment to the arts. Ken and Debbie ~ Ken Newman Sculptures, Cambridge Idaho

    • There is not an official listing in one place. It is scattered about in a variety of places. Working on pulling it together in some semblance.

  2. Scott — just discovered your site. Hope it is still going. Did you know that there was another member of the LRHS class of 1951 who became known nationally beside Ben Piazza & Charlotte Moorman? Jim Hutchison was a dancer in New York City, film, & television, then choreographer leading the Honolulu City Ballet and artistic director of the Honolulu Community Theater. I think it is amazing to have three such members in the same high school class.
    [By the way, Ben was not the only one of the class of ‘51 to go to an Ivy League university. There were six of us.]

    • Thank you for the information! I knew there were several from Little Rock High School who went to Ivy League schools, but did not know the exact number. That strong connection continues today.
