While our MacArthur Park home is under construction, visit the Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts’ virtual exhibitions and exhibitions of the AMFA Foundation Collection works throughout Arkansas. These exhibitions showcase the depth of the AMFA Foundation Collection, along with AMFA’s commitment to arts education and supporting emerging and established regional artists.
Delta Voices: Artists of the Mid-South
Join us this summer for a limited podcast and video series highlighting emerging artists.
The four Delta Voices participants, which include artists working in photography, drawing, painting, performance, video and installation, represent the outstanding artwork made throughout the Mid-South today.
Each week, we ask art curators in our region about the artists in their communities that they’re most interested in and excited about, and capture them in conversation about art, place, identity and community.
60th Young Arkansas Artists Exhibition
While the Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts is under construction, the 60th Young Arkansas Artists Exhibition is on view virtually.
The Young Arkansas Artists program highlights the talent, imagination, and perspective of students across Arkansas. For 60 years, AMFA has opened a door for young people to showcase their artistic talents and skills through its hosting of the Young Arkansas Artist Exhibition. Arkansas teachers – from kindergarten through 12th grade – submit student works in a variety of media to be considered for an annual juried exhibition. Exceptional works at each grade level are recognized and art programs at select schools receive monetary awards supported by private donors and the Mid-Southern Watercolorists.

The exhibition also features a selection of figurative works by Auguste Rodin, Joyce J. Scott, Henry Moore, and Michael Ferris Jr., among others.
