Tonight's June Freeman Lecture Series at the Arkansas Arts Center features Steve Luoni of the University of Arkansas Community Design Center, who'll talk about recovery plans for Vilonia and Mayflower, towns devastated by tornadoes in 2014.

The UACDC's plan for Mayflower, "Slow Street," won a World Architecture News Award or Future Projects in Urban Design in 2015. The plans for Mayflower and Vilonia address the towns' desire for walkable town centers with mixed land uses.

Luoni will speak at 6 p.m. after a 5:30 p.m. reception. The lecture series is sponsored by the Architecture and Design Network.

  • Finally, a memorial to the 21 boys who were burned to death at Wrightsville in '59

    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.
