Border Cantos is a timely, new and free exhibit now on view at Crystal Bridges.
It's the week of Valentine's Day, friends, and — believe it or not — even the staff of the Arkansas Times is not immune to the charms of Aphrodite. Though we've all been burned by that old girl more times than we like to remember, it seems we just can't stop ourselves from tearing up the restraining order and letting her in every time she comes crawling back with tears in her eyes, asking for just one more chance. So it is with most people, even the most jaded among us. The heart craves love like a kitten craves cream. And the heart must be served.
Given that our street date this week falls just before V-Day, we decided to give a waking kiss to a slumbering chestnut that was a favorite back in the good ol' days of the Times — a special issue on l'amour, in which we explore the red and pink palette of that smooshiest of emotions, speaking with regular folks about what they look for, or what they've found, in a partner. So, dearest love, doll yourself up for a blind date with Arkansans of all stripes who are either looking for love (some of them in all the wrong places) or who have found it in spades.
