Pine Bluff Arkansas Art
At Pine Bluff High School, art teacher Shalisha Thomas knew she had to broaden her students "interest in art. But she would have expected to receive a $25,000 scholarship to study art and design at the University of Arkansas and leave school $25,000 richer today.
In 2004, the newly founded University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff (UAPB) became the home of the Arkansas Center for the Study of Art and Design (ACAD). New to the permanent collection of the Centre is a collection of works by local artists, many of whom are in their mid-30s. Lawrence Davis has been director of art and design at PineBluff High School Art Center for 30 years and saw the need for a permanent museum of his work when the University of Arkansas - Pinebluff or UapB - became part of its new campus.
New to the permanent collection of the Centre is a collection of works by local artists, many of them in their mid-30s. Linton's artworks include paintings, drawings, sculptures, prints, photographs and other works of art from the past and present.
From 1990 to 1995, Linton was an art teacher at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff's College of Art and Design. He also worked as an art teacher for the Arkansas State Museum of Fine Arts in Little Rock, Arkansas, and was a member of the board of directors of the New Orleans Art Museum from 1990 to 1995.
Today, the Arts & Science Center is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums (AAM), which accredits museums in the state. In addition to the high-quality exhibits for children in science, it is a member of the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation - funded by the Arkansas Discovery Network, a national leader in educational programs for children and young adults in science, technology, technology and math (STEM).
One of the great ideas I share with the Arkansas Times is to champion Arkansas' artistic and creative economy and its economic development. I support the efforts of the National Endowment for the Arts to expand its role in promoting creativity and innovation in Arkansas and the United States, and I am proud to have the support of state arts and cultural institutions and our local arts organizations. The Arkansas Legislative Arts Caucus is a resource for artists, artist organizations and artist groups in the state of Arkansas. We are working for legislation that invests in our artistic workforce and creative economy.
Our mission is to promote the importance of artistic development to Arkansas youth, and our mission is to educate, promote and support artists, artists and arts organizations in Arkansas. Our goal is to build an art advocate who is educated, passionate and passionate about the arts, art education and the state arts economy.
We expose young people and young adults to cultural arts by offering them opportunities to discover and present the arts such as dance, music, theatre, visual arts and music. The Arts and Science Center of Southeast Arkansas engages, educates, entertains, engages, and serves children, adults, and adults of all ages and backgrounds as an educational resource through the arts and science. With a variety of live theater productions, concerts, dance performances, art exhibitions, educational programs and workshops, the Arkansas Arts Center has something for everyone.
The Arts and Science Center of Southeast Arkansas has developed a unique collection of photographs, ranging from documenting the culture of the Mississippi Delta to abstract images. The main tools used by Thomas Linton, a PhD student at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff. In 1971 he received the prize for the best exhibition in the Arkansas Artist Competition and was awarded the Keeper of the Spirit Award of the University from 1971 - 1998 and the Keepers of Spirit Award in 1998. Last year, Thomas partnered with the Southeastern Arkansas Arts and Science Center to exhibit a student work that competed with the work of many of his peers from his high school days.
Howard came to Pine Bluff in 1939 to study in New York and spent four years teaching at the University of Arkansas, becoming the first African-American to earn a doctorate in art history.
Thomas earned a Bachelor of Science in Art Education from the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff in 2012. The Branch Normal College eventually became Southeast Arkansas College (SEARK College), which opened in 2010 as part of the Arkansas State University System in Little Rock. He taught Kevin Cole, who has continued the mural tradition with his work in PineBluff, as well as other local artists.
In 1968, under Freeman, who was still at the helm, the Little Firehouse Community Arts Center merged with the Civic Center Art Museum, located in Pine Bluff, just blocks from the original fire station. Since the two centers became one, they have been under the control of the PineBluff Civic Center, which includes an art gallery and a theater. The center has grown into a performing arts center and expanded its reach to attract artists from across the state, as well as local businesses, schools and community organizations.
