Virtual 2nd Friday Art Night • On Facebook Live! Dec. 11 @ 5

December 11, 2020 5 PM to December 11, 2020 8PM

Historic Arkansas Museum - 200 E. Third Street, Little Rock AR



Additional Event Details

Join us on the museum’s Facebook page for a virtual 2nd Friday Art Night featuring the 16th Ever Nog-off & an online opening reception.

As a wise man once said, “Eggnog is like Santa. You never question it. It shows up around Christmas and then goes away.” Don’t let eggnog pass you by this year even though we won’t have our holiday favorite event, the Nog-off, in person. Whip up some nog yourself with the help of a how-to video and then check out our virtual Art Night, which will definitely include a nod to nog. If you’ve ever wondered how the Nog-off began and how it spread from one little museum in Little Rock (that’s us!) to the Ozarks, the Pacific Northwest, the East Coast, Canada, and beyond – check out our History of the Nog-off video. Then pour yourself another cup!

As we like to say this time of year: Happy Nogging! And, with fingers crossed, we will see you lined up around the block next year for the best eggnog in town!

Collectively Alone: Works by Benjamin Krain and Kensuke Yamada

The artists’ observations and thoughts for this exhibit have converged around the aloneness of creating during the COVID-19 era. This exhibit, curated by the Arkansas Arts Council, reflects on experiences, moments, and thoughts of beauty and individuality. Whether in crowds or in solitude, some people have always been living in their own world. 

After concentrating on photography and journalism, Benjamin Krain graduated from University of Arkansas at Little Rock in 1996 and almost immediately accepted a job with The Arkansas Democrat Gazette as a photojournalist. Krain has won numerous state and national awards and has had his work featured in publications like Time, Newsweek, and The New York Times. Benjamin is currently employed by the University of Arkansas at Little Rock’s Office of Communications, where he photographs a wide variety of university events.

UA Little Rock Assistant Professor of Ceramics, Kensuke Yamada, has traveled widely for professional residencies including Resident Artist at the Archie Bray Foundation in Montana, the Clay Studio in Philadelphia, as well as guest and adjunct positions at Tyler School of Art, Temple University and others. Yamada originally came to the US from Japan to attend Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington, where he received his Bachelor of Arts degree. In 2009, he received a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Montana.

Collectively Alone: Works by Benjamin Krain and Kensuke Yamada continues in the Trinity Gallery for Arkansas Artists through March 26, 2021.
