The Arts & Science Center for Southeast Arkansas, 701 S. Main St., will present the free screening of the film Sacred Spaces: The Architecture of Fay Jones, from 1:30–3:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 21.
The community is invited to attend the presentation about the Pine Bluff native. In 2009, the School of Architecture at the University of Arkansas was named in honor of Jones.
“Born in Pine Bluff, Fay Jones was an internationally known architect from Arkansas who won the American Institute of Architects’ highest honor, the AIA Gold Metal, in 1990,” according to a news release. “Jones studied under internationally known architect, Frank Lloyd Wright. From 1958-1998, Jones designed 218 projects, encompassing residential buildings, educational and commercial buildings, chapels, pavilions, and intricate metal structures. The most acclaimed of Jones’ buildings is Thorncrown Chapel in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.”
Directly following the screening, officials will discuss Jones’ architectural legacy and the mid-century architecture of Pine Bluff. Presenters will include Fred Reed, president of Reed Architectural Firm; Mason Toms, Preservation & Design coordinator for Main Street Arkansas; and Callie Williams, National Register historian for the Arkansas Historic Preservation Program.
