Tonight at Thea: Teachers, patients at ACH

The Thea Center's Third Friday Argenta Artwalk show features collaborative pieces by artists-in-residence at Arkansas Children's Hospital Hamid Ebrahimifar and Elizabeth Weber and patients.

Thea will be open from 5:30 to 8 p.m.; some of the patients' work will be for sale. Live music will be provided by the Pickoids.

Ebrahimifar and Weber's program is meant to give children a means of expression, new skills and a feeling of control, rather than fear; it involves family and caregivers as well as the kids. Their work is funded by a grant from the Arkansas Arts Council.
