Anniversary Art Installation


The Arts & Science Center for Southeast Arkansas, 701 S. Main St., will host its 50th Anniversary Art Installation from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 18.


The center invites the public to celebrate the installations of works by internationally acclaimed artists Kevin Cole and James Hayes. A reception will be held at 5 p.m., with remarks by ASC Executive Director Rachel Miller and ASC Curator Lenore Shoults at 5:30 p.m.


“The works were commissioned to commemorate the Arts & Science Center’s 50th anniversary,” according to a news release. “The artists custom designed their pieces for the ASC atrium: Cole’s aluminum and mixed-media, wall-mounted sculpture ‘A Tale of Two Blessings: Passion vs Purpose,’ and Hayes’ blown glass ‘Celebration Chandelier,’ which is suspended from the rotunda.”


“Wood & Wine” workshop


ASC will present its “Wood & Wine” workshop from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 25. At the new art-making workshop, participants will create a rustic wooden sign under the-step-by step direction of instructor Troy DeBill. Complimentary wine or beer (or nonalcoholic beverages) will be served. Advanced registration is required and participants must be 21 years old to attend. For prices and registration, visit asc701.org/class/wood-wine or call 870-536-3375.


“Who What Wear”


Arkansas Arts Center’s Artmobile will visit the local art center and present “Who What Wear” — Tuesday, Oct. 30 through Friday, Nov. 2, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Saturday, Nov. 3, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The “Who What Wear” exhibition presents a tailored collection of original works from the center’s permanent collection.


“While engaging with diverse representations of clothing, viewers are invited to try on the idea that who they are is reflected in what they wear. The 40-foot ‘gallery on wheels’ is one of very few mobile museum programs in the country,” according to the release.


To schedule a field trip, email or call ASC Public Programs Coordinator Leonor Colbert at lcolbert@asc701.org or 870-536-3375.


“The Artmobile’s visit to Pine Bluff is made possible by a generous grant from the Ben J. Altheimer Charitable Foundation,” according to the release.
