NWA Art Scene Grows, Supported by Student Involvement

Northwest Arkansas has a growing art scene that includes various galleries, museums and public art. UA students can visit places like Fayetteville, Bentonville and Rogers to view art of all mediums.

ArtVentures is a nonprofit art gallery space located in downtown Fayetteville on the Square, said Joelle Storet, ArtVenture’s gallery manager.

About 42 local artists are exclusive to ArtVentures and have new artwork in the gallery each month, Storet said.

The gallery owners rotate the artwork every month during First Thursday Fayetteville, Storet said.

First Thursday Fayetteville is an event that transforms downtown Fayetteville into an outdoor arts district with live music and food, according to Experiencing Fayetteville.
