Delta Through the Decades Deux: Selections from the Collection

The Annual Delta Exhibition was founded in 1958 to feature contemporary work by artists from Arkansas and bordering states. The Delta provides a unique snapshot of the artists from the Mississippi Delta region and a glimpse into the contemporary art scene, reflecting the region’s strong traditions of craftsmanship and observation, combined with innovative use of materials and an experimental approach to subject matter.

Through Our Eyes

August 7, 2018 – November 11, 2018

Through Our Eyes, featuring a selection of works from current youth students ranging from age 2 to age 18, serves as a visual reminder of the importance of arts education. Visitors will notice that the show is hung at a lower center, making it more inviting and accessible to children. This truly gives ownership of the work and exhibition to the youth students and creates a feeling of comfort and belonging that is not always present in a traditionally hung museum exhibition.

AAC Collection



The scintillating watercolors and drawings of late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century French artist Paul Signac are the focus of two intimate galleries at the Arkansas Arts Center that have recently been redesigned and reinstalled. These works come from America’s finest collection of Signac’s graphic art, one hundred and thirty-three works that were assembled by Arkansan industrialist James T. Dyke. Mr. Dyke presented this magnificent collection to the Arkansas Arts Center in 1999.
