You can see Hall's enamel works at the Arkansas Arts Center in the exhibition "Glass Fantasies." See the Heifer International World Headquarters and the Arkansas Studies Institute as examples of Rowland's work. If you're in Mountain View, stop by the Stone County Historical Society to see Hardison's Mountain Music Project, 100 photos and interviews. And if you happen to have the poster made for David Bowie & The Spiders performance at Detroit's Fisher Theater in 1972 or Canned Heat at the Grande Ballroom, you've got work by Elbo.
