"History is always happening" at Little Rock Central High School National Historic Site
The Friends of Contemporary Crafts have brought nationally-recognized craft artists to Little Rock for Sunday programs for several years. These are excellent talks by America's top talent, followed by a nice meal and libations. Here's a way to keep the talks coming: Head to the Arts Center at 5:30 p.m. this Sunday, June 23, for a silent auction of art donated by private collectors and artists.
Anncha Briggs, who's heading up the auction, says the value of the items — about 65 objets d'arts in all media — ranges from $50 to $2,800.
Here's a link to a gallery of some of the work to be auctioned. If I had the wherewithal, the rug shown above would be mine, all mine.
Wine and light snacks will be served. The FOCC will hold its annual meeting after the auction, at 6:30 p.m., so don't dawdle.
You can also join the FOCC while you're there to receive its newsletter and free admission to FOCC events.
Postscript: The event is free to FOCC members; others will pay $20 (for a membership).
The thing about "portable"/"recreate-able" installation art is that it kind of invalidates the whole concept…
Does the work become a "sculptural piece"? (And is the flat wall, the video?)
