Fayetteville was recently voted number 7 in USA TODAY's 2014 10Best College Towns. We're honored by the designation and are very proud to be in such great company. Here's what USA TODAY had to say about our little town :
"Located in the stunning Ozark Mountains of Northwestern Arkansas, Fayetteville is home to the state's flagship educational institution, the University of Arkansas. Besides serving as a gateway to the outdoor adventures of the Ozarks, the town is steeped in history: the Trail of Tears and Butterfield Overland Trail both passed through, and several historic buildings used by Civil War troops still stand."
But don't just take their word for it, plan your next visit today!
Get ready to be amazed this January 20th through 25th at the Walton Arts Center! SLAVA’S SNOWSHOW is a fusion of traditional and contemporary theatrical clowning arts. The show brilliantly creates a world of wonderment and fantasy that will transport you to a joyous dreamlike place, where a bed becomes a boat in a storm-tossed sea; a woman is wrapped in cellophane and becomes flowers in a vase; a child walks in amazement inside a bubble; Slava boards a train and then becomes the train, his chimney-pot hat billowing smoke.
Slava's Snowshow is a stage spectacle created and staged by Russian performance artist Slava Polunin. The show won the Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatrical Experience and was nominated for the Tony Award for Best Special Theatrical Event.
The stunning finale sees a letter turned into snowflakes, and the flakes turn into a snowstorm which whirls around the auditorium, leaving you ankle-deep in snow.
Don’t miss this one-of-a-kind theatrical experience! For more information, visit the Walton Arts Center's website. Recommended for ages 8+.
