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.

    • 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.
