Public art in NLR

Argenta News has a good discussion going on public art, specifically the idea of painting traffic control boxes in North Little Rock as has been done here. The photo is from the website, operated by Scott Miller.

As you'll see, folks take the Argenta Historic District very seriously.

It prompts this comment to us from local artist V.L. Cox (she did not do the art in question):

I personally am shocked at these blogs.  This such a shame, but typical of the Argenta area.  You cannot sneeze these days without some resident or renter screaming about it and falling back on the historic district expansion.  Everything from Fat Boys restaurant not being a 'legal' restaurant to public art being painted over in the middle of the night that didn't get the renters' and residents' "approval" or vote.  How sad. Nothing wrong with being a little cautious, but too many art and food critics will soon spoil the town that is being touted at "An Arts Community."

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
