  • "Clay County Farm," by Thomas Hart Benton

The Arkansas Arts Center has acquired a late Thomas Hart Benton painting, "Clay County Farm," that shows a man fishing on Benton's property. The 32-by-22 oil was painted in 1971, four years before the artist's death, and was a bequest from the estates of Louise and Fred Dierks. It's on exhibit in the Stephens Gallery, which along with the Bailey Gallery is showing a new exhibit of works from the Arts Center's collection and loans from the Jack Stephens collection in chronological order.

Another gift from the Dierks' estates, a sculpture in marble by Barbara Hepworth, is also on display.

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
