Carlos Luna Exhibit

Date: Friday, June 2, 2017 to Tuesday, September 19, 2017
Time: All Day to 12:00am
Location: Fort Smith Regional Art Museum 1601 Rogers Ave Fort Smith, 7290

Carlos Luna is a contemporary Cuban-American painter, sculptor, printmaker, and ceramicist. Duality is a common theme in Cuban art, and Luna’s art embodies the internal struggles of an artist who has been uprooted. His art references the artistic traditions of the Cuban Havana School influenced by Wifredo Lam, the European Cubist paintings of French artist Fernand Léger, the storytelling of Mexican muralism and even the horror vacui of the Latin American baroque. This exhibition will feature over 50 works of this prolific artist, that include mixed media on wood, large-scale tapestries, and works on paper. General admission is always free. Opening reception is Thursday, June 1, 5-7PM, free for members, $5 for non-members.

Eclipse Watch Party

Time: 12:00pm to 2:00pm
Location: Fort Smith Public Library (all locations) 3201 Rogers Avenue For

On Monday, August 21, 2017, the United States will experience its first coast-to-coast total solar eclipse in 99 years. This spectacular event takes place when the moon blocks the sun, turning daylight into twilight and leaving the sun's atmosphere, or corona, visible for a brief moment. The eclipse is predicted to happen in our community between 1:00 – 1:30 pm with almost 90% coverage. The Fort Smith Public Library will be holding Eclipse Watch Parties at all library locations; bring your friends, family, and lawn chair or blanket and join the celebration. A limited number of eclipse glasses will be provided on a first-come-first-serve basis; NEVER look directly at the Sun without proper solar filters. This natural event is weather dependent and will be best viewed on a cloudless day; hope for clear skies!
