Tonight's Arkansas Arts Center lecture by Gayle Seymour, "Arkansas Post Office Murals: Women Artists of the Depression Era," will go on, but not in the lecture hall as scheduled. Last night's rains backed up roof drains and flooded the lecture hall. No art was damaged; the lecture hall will be closed until April 12. 

Seymour will speak in the Jeannette Edris Rockefeller Gallery, where the Charles Burchfield exhibit is on view. There will be a wine reception at 5:30 p.m.; the talk will follow. Rackensack musicians will perform after the talk until 9 p.m., and the restaurant will remain open. The event is free to members, $10 to nonmembers.

Seymour is associate dean in the college of fine arts and communications at the University of Central Arkansas. She'll address the limitations put on women artists of the era. Our Art Bus travelers on Saturday will also get to hear Seymour talk about work at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art.

Reserve at 372-4000.

    Smart Mobility Inc. engineer Norm Marshall explains in this Congress for New Urbanism article why highway departments' arguments for highway widening fall short of reality (as the graphic above does as well): He says its because their modeling is out of whack, both in its estimates of the effect of expansion on travel times and the effectiveness of boulevards, and he uses the plan to widen Interstate 30 from six lanes of traffic to 12 or more as an example.

    Some more history on the Little Rock city ordinance that limits candidates for mayor and City Board to raising campaign funds to five months before the November 2018 election.
