Music and Clinton at Old State House 

SHAWN CAMP: At Old State House
  • SHAWN CAMP: At Old State House
We know Bill Clinton likes his music, and the Old State House Museum is filling the bill with free shows from Arkansas musicians 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday as the Clinton Presidential Center opening celebration winds down. Young blues sensation Kory Montgomery will perform on Thursday, and country singer-songwriter Shawn Camp, who impressed in a recent Little Rock show with other fellow Nashville artists, will perform on Friday. Both shows are in the museum’s 1885 House of Representatives Chamber. Seating is limited. Also, the museum, the site where Clinton announced his candidacy for president in 1991 and celebrated his wins in 1992 and ’96, is showcasing memorabilia from his presidential term. The exhibit, which will remain up through the end of December, includes posters, buttons, press passes and photographs from Clinton’s two presidential campaigns. Some items are in the museum’s permanent exhibit, “From the Old State House to the White House,” which also features some of Clinton’s most recognized personal effects: his running shoes, saxophone, dark sunglasses, and a replica of his desk from the Oval Office. More campaign memorabilia is on view throughout the museum’s first floor. Also, four garments worn by Hillary Clinton are on loan to the museum, as well as several of her gubernatorial gowns. Exhibits are free. The museum has extended hours this week, staying open until 9 p.m. Also on Saturday, Clinton's high school hometown will honor him. The Hot Springs Community Band will play from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Hot Springs Advertising and Promotion Commission will distribute 100,000 free trading cards, the latest in a series featuring Bill Clinton. It will have a photo taken at the Clinton Presidential Center dedication.
