Treasured Memories: My Life, My Story

"Untitled" by Delita MartinMosaic Templars Cultural Center's “Treasured Memories: My Life, My Story” exhibit comprises two parts: the 2016 additions to the Creative Arkansas collection as well as other pieces recently acquired by the museum. The exhibit features 23 pieces by 14 different artists.

The 2016 Creativity Arkansas artists are Barbara Higgins Bond, Danny Campbell, Latoya Hobbs, Delita Martin, Aj Smith and Rex Deloney.

The Creativity Arkansas collection began in 2008 and showcases artwork created by African American artists with a connection to Arkansas. The collection celebrates the history of the state through vivid works in a variety of media. Consistent with the vision of MTCC, the collection preserves and documents Arkansas history through the visual arts.

Artwork acquired for Creativity Arkansas is used for MTCC’s educational programming and periodically serves as inspiration for new public programs. The entire collection is funded through a grant from the Arkansas Natural and Cultural Resources Council.

“Treasured Memories: My Life, My Story” will be on display through June 2017.
