Join the parade at the Clinton Library

When Susan Purvis, a recently retired Little Rock School District art teacher, died unexpectedly July 16 I mentioned the many awards won by her students at Gibbs Elementary in the annual student competition at the Arkansas Arts Center, typically grand collaborations in big thematic displays.

Above is one such winner — the representation of the 1993 Clinton Inaugural Parade. It's in the collection of the Clinton presidential library and is on display this month at the library as a tribute to Purvis. Visiting school kids are spending a lot of time admiring it.
