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.
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.
62nd Delta Exhibition
While the Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts is under construction, the 62nd Delta Exhibition is on view virtually.
Elevating artistic voices from Arkansas and its six surrounding states, the Delta Exhibition explores identity, place, history, heritage, and power. As one of the longest-running and most prestigious juried art exhibitions in the region, the Delta Exhibition represents AMFA’s commitment to artists living and working in our community today – and to continuing to nurture and promote artistic talent throughout the mid-South region.
