Arts in the Air Professional Art Exhibit and Sale
The work of 25 select artists will be featured at the Winthrop Rockefeller Institute’s third annual Arts in the Air Professional Art Exhibit and Sale from June 7 to July 5. The purpose of this month-long exhibit and sale is to support the creativity of Arkansas’ artists and promote art awareness and appreciation. http://www.uawri.org/page/281/AIA-professional
