Locations for the upcoming public art installation, Green Candy, have been announced. International and local artists will be transforming four sites around downtown Fayetteville into works of art.
Experience Fayetteville is presenting the event and appointed global creative house Justkids to curate Green Candy, an art action aimed to create community conversations around waste and sustainability through engaging art projects.
Fayetteville has long been the artistic epicenter of Northwest Arkansas, thanks in large part to the University of Arkansas, which — as the state’s oldest and largest college campus — has influenced Arkansas culture since its founding in 1871.
Just Kids and Experience Fayetteville are currently accepting proposals from Fayetteville-based artists (artists either residing in or actively involved in the Fayetteville art community) to participate in a public art event to be held during the final week of August 2017 by creating original artwork (sculpture, installation, mural).
One of Northwest Arkansas’ most anticipated midsummer events is back! The Botanical Garden of the Ozarks will transform into an exciting land of imagination for the 2017 Firefly Fling on Saturday, July 15, from 6 to 10 pm.
Exciting new art is coming to Northwest Arkansas this summer, as Crystal Bridges Museum in Bentonville prepares to feature work by American sculptor Dale Chihuly.

Tickets range from $10 to $20 and can be purchased in advance on the Crystal Bridges website.

Artosphere: Arkansas' Arts and Nature Festival returns June 10 - 29, 2019. The festival, presented by the Walton Arts Center, celebrates artists influenced by nature, who inspire us to live more sustainable lives.
“As we celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Artosphere Festival in 2019, which coincides with the 50th anniversary of man walking on the moon, we are focusing thematically on space. Since the dawn of time, space has been a source of wonder, innovation, and artistic inspiration for all the world’s people. Further, man’s exploration of space has given us the technology to look back on ourselves and observe both the Earth’s changing ecosystem and our shared humanity. In that Artosphere was designed to explore the intersection of arts + nature, always with an eye toward sustainability, space seems like the perfect theme.” – Scott Galbraith, Vice President of Programming and Executive Producer
