The Cox Creative Center, the curved brick building across from the Main Library operated by the Central Arkansas Library System, will open an exhibit Friday of the shoes of Arkansas soldiers who fought and died in Iraq and Afghanistan. The exhibition will be open after hours, 5-8 p.m., for 2nd Friday Art Night, and there will be a reception at 6:30 p.m.

The exhibition is a joint project of students of Lyon College in Batesville and the Coalition of Peace and Justice in Little Rock. Throughout the exhibition, Lyon College students will collect condolence messages for the families of the soldiers. The show, which will also feature artwork from students and Afghan artists responding to the war, will run through April 27.
