Arts & Culture

Arkansas' rich heritage and history are woven throughout the state, much like the rich colors, patterns, and textures that are displayed throughout Arkansas' visual arts, architecture, and museums. This tapestry pieces together the stories associated with Arkansas's historic buildings like the ever popular Old State House Museum and the little known Hinderliter Grog Shop, and is creatively expressed on stage and canvas in Arkansas' arts and music, as well as in dance and pottery. The folklore of the Arkansas people begins with Native American Tribes and the Trail of Tears and extends to powerful and famous politicians, including the first U.S. president to be elected from Arkansas. Annual cultural and heritage events offer fun for the entire family and passes on stories about Arkansas's heritage to future generations.
