Call for artists: "Celebrate 501" Mini Mural Project

Roughly every six months, a new temporary art installation is displayed in Baker's Alley in downtown Little Rock. Currently on display is the "2020 Through My Eyes" young artists project. As we approach its six-month mark, we prepare for a new installation, this one with the theme "Celebrate 501: The Heart of Arkansas."

When you think of central Arkansas, what comes to mind? Is it the scenery, the history, a hiking trail, the Capitol, the river, a certain local business, the people? ...Something totally different? What makes us unique? Show us through art.

Seven applicants will be chosen for this project.
