The Arkansas Arts Center, the state's largest cultural institution, is a museum of art and an active center for the visual and performing arts.
The Arkansas Arts Center is an art museum with a children's theatre and a studio school. Founded in 1961, its mission is to ensure that learning, inspiration and creative expression in the arts flourish throughout Arkansas, for people of all ages and backgrounds. The AAC realizes this mission by developing, preserving and exhibiting its outstanding permanent collection, offering a rich variety of art from other collections and presenting programs for the education and cultural benefit of the public.
Among the most recognizable works in the Museum's collection are sheets by Cézanne, Van Gogh, Jackson Pollock, Georgia O’Keeffe, Alison Saar, Rembrandt and Rubens. The collection also features 135 drawings and watercolors by the Post-Impressionist Paul Signac, over 100 Post-Minimalist drawings, Arthur Dove’s Sketchbook “E”, and nearly 80 works by Will Barnet.
