Hogs short on players
When Arkansas started SEC play by sneaking out of College Station, Texas, with a really shaky victory over those pernicious Aggie types, it all seemed so simple, right? The formula for some degree of success in what is shaping up to be a rough-and-tumble league in 2018-19 was set: The Hogs could ill afford to be so reliant on the three-pointer, they had to be aggressive defensively, and they had to figure out some way to get their short, inexperienced bench to contribute. /more/

'True Detective' episode 3 recap: Follow the haircuts

click to enlarge td3.jpeg
Wayne Hays feels out of sorts in Episode 3 of “True Detective,” and he’s not the only one. “I’m a little fuzzy,” Det. Roland West (Stephen Dorff) says in his 1990 deposition. We’re now moving with a bit more confidence around the three time periods: 1980, 1990, 2015. You've got to follow the haircuts if you want to follow the plot, a mirror of the increasingly fragile mental state of 70-year-old Wayne Hays (Mahershala Ali) in 2015. The episode is short on bombshells, but gets deeper into what do we know, and why.

'Photographing Frida,' the artist as art: coming to the Arts Center

When we think of Pablo Picasso, we think of his mural “Guernica,” perhaps, or the Cubist “Demoiselles D’Avignon.” When we think of Frida Kahlo, we think of the woman, with her long Mexican dresses, oversized jewelry, flowery headdresses and iconic monobrow.

Kahlo was every much an artist as her on-again, off-again husband, Diego Rivera, but her personal glamour has gotten as much, if not more, attention as her paintings. She was herself a walking artwork, and because of her bohemian beauty, Kahlo was the subject of hundreds of photographs by such important photographers as Edward Weston, Imogen Cunningham and Lola Alvarez Bravo, and 65 such portraits will make up the “Photographing Frida” exhibition opening Feb. 1 at the Arkansas Arts Center.
