The Baum Gallery in McCastlain Hall is free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday 1 to 5 p.m. and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
As a preview, you can check out the featured artists on the Arkansas Committee of the National Museum of Women in the Arts website.
The National Museum of Women in the Arts put forth this theme for the New Worlds exhibition in the Women to Watch series: Visionary artists reimagine the past, present alternate realities, and inspire audiences to create different futures. During the past few years, our world has been transformed by a global pandemic, advocacy for social reform, and political division. How have these extraordinary times inspired artists?
One artist in the Arkansas Women to Watch 2023: New Worlds exhibition will represent the state in the National Women to Watch 2024: New Worlds exhibition, April 14 to August 4, 2024, at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C.
Don't miss the chance to see this traveling exhibition before it ends on October 13. Plan your visit to the Baum Gallery and join in celebrating their contributions to the art world. Let their voices resonate and inspire as you experience the Arkansas Women to Watch exhibition.
