Art In Downtown

Downtown Fayetteville will be buzzing with art in March. In addition to the month-long Goddess Festival exhibit at 1 E. Center St., the Fayetteville Underground — also at that location — will open shows on March 4 in three separate galleries. Showing will be textile artist Jennifer Libby Fay, painter William Mayes Flanagan and photographer Don House.

Additionally, a public art project, “The Homeless Project” by Bethany Springer, will show at four locations on the square. Springer’s video and sound exhibition presents the personal stories of 27 local homeless people. Their testimonies reveal memories and personal meanings associated with the term “home.” Springer, an assistant professor of art at the University of Arkansas, began the project in 2007, interviewing residents of local shelters, makeshift campsites and transitional housing. The videos will be set for viewing from the sidewalk at 1 E. Center St., 21 S. Block Ave., 26 E. Center St. and 40 E. Center St.
