OK, let me say right up front that I have never heard of museum hacks, much less subversive ones. But that's how the Arkansas Arts Center describes tonight's "Assembly Required" event from 6-10 p.m. If it's like the Met Museum hacks, what it means is folks will be getting a tour of "30 Americans," an exhibition of work from the Rubell Family collection of contemporary art by African Americans, in a most unusual way. The AAC says the event will include "socializing, music, art and art-making" and adult beverages. Sounds like a lot of fun. $10 for members, $12 for nonmembers. Call 372-4000 if you want to know if I've got this right.

    It has been 59 years since 21 teen-aged boys incarcerated at the so-called Negro Boys Industrial School were burned to death in their locked dormitory. The Times wrote about the event in 2008, after the brother and mother of one of the boys approached the Times looking for someone to remember the event, and headlined the story "Stirring the Ashes." But on Saturday, a monument to the boys was placed at Haven of Rest Cemetery, where 14 of the boys were buried.

  • Arkansas Repertory Theatre to suspend operations immediately

    “The inability to reach its projected goals for charitable giving and ticket sales, and the change in the theatre landscape in Little Rock have created a perfect financial storm for The Rep,” Board Chair Brian Bush said. “The Rep’s ticket sales have been on a downhill slope for several years. Our community is on the verge of losing an amazing arts organization and tremendous asset to our city. Closing The Rep will have a devastating impact on the redevelopment of Main Street and the creative corridor.”
