  • BOMBS AWAY: Of the soft variety, at the Arts Center.

The Arkansas Arts Center is, as you can see in the photo above posted by Louise Palermo, curator of education, on her Facebook page, in the process of being yarn-bombed. It's an enormous project and it includes wrapping knitted work not just on the facade of the building but trees and light poles. Palermo said they've been working for days to get it up.

The yarn-bomb is a prelude to Fountain Fest, 5:30-8 p.m. Sept. 19, a fund-raiser for the AAC's Contemporaries auxiliary group, to help fund purchases of art for the Arts Center.

The event will take place around the Carrie Remmel Dickinson Fountain and will include an interactive art activity, music from the Funkanites, barbecue from Whole Hog Cafe, desserts from Cupcakes on Kavanaugh and beverages.

    Wynton Marsalis visited Pine Bluff yesterday to pay a visit to the 93-year-old jazz legend Clark Terry, currently in the hospital (and accepting donations for his medical care).

  • The Mansion takeover: Of course it was Hutchinson's idea

    Of course the take over of the Governor's Mansion by Asa Hutchinson was his idea, not that of legislators who claimed credit. And the reason portends changes in historic appearance and use of what was once the people's mansion.
  • Truth, not Trump

    The rationalists in both parties and the nonpartisan public have little time left to sort out Donald Trump and his magic with the lusty crowds that show up for his rallies, hang on his tweets, follow his Fox News gabfests and give him outsized votes in the primaries.
