Arkadelphia winner in mural contest

Loewensteins Migration in Great Bend, Kan.
  • Loewenstein's "Migration" in Great Bend, Kan.


The Mid-America Arts Alliance has selected Arkadelphia for its Community Mural Project, which we wrote about earlier here.

Arkadelphia booster V.L. Cox sends us a heads up on the news from the mural project's blogspot, which will follow the progress of the mural in Arkadelphia. Jordan Karpe, a Little Rock artist, will apprentice with muralist and writer Dave Loewenstein of Lawrence, Kan., later this summer. Loewenstein, who teaches "Roots and Practice: Community Based Public Art" at Washburn University in Topeka, has done murals in Missouri, Arizona, Mississippi, Iowa, Illinois, Oklahoma, New Orleans, New York City and in Northern Ireland and has stencil prints in the New York Public Library and the Center for the Study of Political Graphics in Los Angeles.

Karpe, a recent graduate of the University of Central Arkansas, designed, organized, and implemented the creation of a mural inside the Jefferson D. Farris dormitory for his honors program thesis. Mural assistant will be Ashley Laird, a professional muralist, whose most recent work, “Reanimating the Arts in Topeka,” can be seen at the Great Wall of Topeka.

The Mid-America Alliance is partnering with the Arkansas Arts Council

Arkadelphia was up against Russellville, Conway, Hot Springs and Fort Smith for the Mid-America project.

  • LIVE LIFE CHILL NOT DEAD DONE GONE

    Contrary to rumor, Live Life Chill, the bar/restaurant in the erstwhile Revolution Taco and Tequila Lounge space at the corner of Cantrell and President Clinton Avenue, is not closed. Service manager Lindsey McFadin called the Times this afternoon to say a rumor the bar had closed was killing business; by 3 p.m., no one had been in. The Times, too, had heard the rumor from a number of sources. What has changed, McFadin said, is that the bar is now only open from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.
