A Collection Vision, 2008 – 2012
Horace C. Cabe Gallery
June 8, 2012 through March 31, 2013
This exhibit highlights the museum’s collecting philosophy and vision. For Historic Arkansas Museum that means Arkansas Made.
The museum began researching and collecting the Arkansas Made work of historic and contemporary Arkansas artists and artisans more than 30 years ago. As a result, the museum now houses the state’s premier collection of indigenously made decorative, mechanical and fine art.
While not all inclusive, this exhibit highlights the range and quality of furniture, silver, ceramics, textiles, firearms and fine art created in Arkansas. Through this creative legacy a new and important interpretation of the history and cultural development of Arkansas is made possible.
Special thanks to the Arkansas Natural and Cultural Resources Council, Historic Arkansas Museum Foundation and Loughborough Trust for their long term support and funding.
