Heidi Mullins installed her sculpture, “Voices of Our Ancestors,” last week at the Bernice Garden at 14th and Main Streets. Mullins, art education professor at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, created the work with assistance of a grant from the Southside Main Street Organization (SOMA), which awarded a total of $15,000 to five artists for the garden, developed by Anita Davis. “Voices” tells the story of Mullins' great-great-grandmother, a Lenni Lenape Delaware named Diodema, who was born on the Trail of Tears and left beside a cabin in a hollow log by her parents. Sandstone pavers circle the sculpture to help tell the story; the “log,” constructed of boards and engraved with the trails followed by the Southeastern Indians during removal, contains chimes that sound when cut-out areas on the sculpture are pushed. Other artists with work installed or about to be installed include Maribeth Anders, David Harris, Elena Petroukhina and Robert Best. Nathan Larson, UALR assistant gallery director, assisted Mullins with the project.

  • Donald Trump is historically unpopular — and not necessarily where you think

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
  • Arkansans join House vote to gut Americans with Disabilities Act

    Despite fierce protests from disabled people, the U.S. House voted today, mostly on party lines, to make it harder to sue businesses for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. Of course Arkansas congressmen were on the wrong side.
