Leon Benn’s “Labor Daze with Female Calliope Hummingbird” 2018
at Thaden Field
Art at lunch or dinner. Art in nature or indoors. Art flashing neon or towering above a playground. The art in Northwest Arkansas is found in the most amazing places. Our museums are exquisite, but we also shock and inspire people throughout their daily lives by displaying high-quality, thought-provoking works of fine art in public spaces.
Art transforms lives and communities. It helps us understand ourselves and each other. Whether it’s creating platforms for emerging artists or fostering conversation on important topics such as diversity, equity and inclusion, OZ Art NWA makes art part of daily life in this Ozarks community.
