2nd Friday Art Night is upon us, starting at 5 p.m., and tonight's event will feature quilts, Quapaw Quarter blueprints, a three-man show, live music, an auction and the film "September 30, 1955" starring richard Thonas and Lisa Blount. 

The Historic Arkansas Museum on Second Street will be the busiest, with "The Great Arkansas Quilt Show 3," a juried exhibition, plus a silent auction, awards presentation and music by Gentlemen Jazz. The show kicks off several quilt related talks and workshops, including two on Saturday and others scheduled for September.

"Quapaw Quarter: Where Little Rock's History Lives" is new at the Butler Center Galleries in the Arkansas Studies Institute on President Clinton. The show highlights the QQA research files, including blueprints and photographs. Also there: “Home Demonstration Clubs or How Women Saved the South,” paintings by Katherine Strause; “State Youth Art Show 2014: An Exhibition by the Arkansas Art Educators,” and “Drawn In: New Art from WWII Camps at Rohwer and Jerome” (Concordia Hall). The retail gallery is featuring Michele Cottler-Fox; musicians Kit and Kaboodle will perform. 

Continuing at the Arkansas Capital Corp. Group gallery at 200 River Market (Suite 400) is "Bold Contrasts: Works by Tod Switch, Matt McLeod and Robert Bean. 

The film will be shown at the Old State House Museum as part of the KUAR Ben Fry  presents series at 5 p.m.; the museum has a new exhibit as well, "Different Spokes," about the history of bicycling, featuring artifacts, historical pictures and video.

A free trolley runs between the venues so you don't have to move your car around the busy River Market district.
