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.

Dew-vies, movies at Dewey’s, will be shown every Sunday afternoon during the month of September at the Café in the Main Library. This week’s feature will be Grease (PG-13). Good girl Sandy and greaser Danny fell in love over the summer. When they unexpectedly discover they're now in the same high school, will they be able to rekindle their romance? John Travolta solidified his position as the most versatile and magnetic screen presence of the decade in this film. Recording star Olivia Newton-John made her American film debut as Sandy, Travolta's naive love interest. The impressive supporting cast reads like a "who's who" in this quintessential musical about the fabulous '50s. Grease is not just a nostalgic look at a simpler decade--it's an energetic and exciting musical homage to the age of rock 'n' roll! Bring your family or a friend to enjoy this musical romance at Dewey’s Café!

William Bradford, who oversaw the construction of the first Fort Smith,the naturalist journeyed to the Red River on a scientific expedition on which the two men became separated. Higgins' talk will involve that adventure. He is the author of "Fort Smith: Vanguard of Western Frontier History," in which Maj. Bradford plays a large role. Higgins has also published “A Stranger and a Sojourner: Peter Caulder, Free Black Frontiersman in Antebellum Arkansas” and a biography of a Major League player "The Barling Darling: Hal Smith's Life in Baseball."
