This week's "50 Works/ 50 Weeks/ 50 Years"

Eric Freemans Aftermath
  • Eric Freeman's "Aftermath"

The Arkansas Arts Center has been celebrating its 50th birthday this year by exhibiting in the atrium every week a work from its collection selected by Arts Center staff member. This week's work is Eric Freeman's photograph "Aftermath," which he shot in New York City after 9/11, and it was selected by Arts Center publicity person Katie Hodges. I hope to follow up in successive weeks on the work showcased in the atrium and the staffer who chose it.

Here's a history of the Arts Center, which opened in its modern form (absent the new galleries and entrance added in 2000) in 1963.
