2nd Friday Art Night at HAM: 'A Diamond in the Rough'

The Historic Arkansas Museum will raise a glass — the vintage cocktail "Millionaire No. 1" — to toast 75 years of its history at its 2nd Friday Art Night reception, 5-8 p.m. March 11.  

"A Diamond in the Rough" will feature works from the permanent exhibition and information on the people who made the museum possible, from Louise Loughborough, who persuaded the legislature to preserve the remnant buildings of early Little Rock and create the Arkansas Territorial Restoration, to contemporary historian Parker Westbrook. There will be living history as well, with actors appearing as Loughborough, Gov. Bailey and Sen. Ed Dillon. The Delta Brass Combo will play, as well. 

The museum celebrates 100 years of women's history on Saturday, when a panel will give a presentation on women connected to the museum — Loughborough; Isabel Brownlee, who lived in the Brownlee House on the museum grounds, and Tabby, Brownlee's slave; Charlotte Stephens, Little Rock's first African-American public school teacher, and her Stephens' mother, Caroline; and Laura Pemberton Robinson, a resident of Little Rock in the 19th and early 20th centuries. That's 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.
