Founded in 1937, the Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts is the largest cultural institution of its kind in the region, offering a unique blend of visual and performing arts experiences. This richly illustrated book celebrates the opening of the museum’s new landmark building, introducing the museum’s collection for the first time within its stunning architecture, designed by Studio Gang, and landscape, designed by SCAPE.
AMFA’s international collection spans seven centuries, with strengths in works on paper and contemporary craft, and includes notable holdings by artists from Arkansas, the Mid-South region, and across the United States and Europe. Located in Little Rock’s oldest urban green space, MacArthur Park, AMFA’s landmark building and grounds are realized in collaboration with Polk Stanley Wilcox Architects.
This celebratory volume will be essential to all visitors, and anyone interested in the art and architecture of the American South.
