Local artist Kathy Thompson has become known for her mixed-media boxes that arrange treasured artifacts into dynamic and resonant compositions. Walton Arts Center commissioned Ms. Thompson to create an original project inspired by archival study, memorabilia and responses from patrons, staff and the arts community. This exhibition honors the past and celebrates the 20-year impression of Walton Arts Center on the cultural landscape of Northwest Arkansas. The decorative and lively boxes will be on display in the Joy Pratt Markham Gallery from Aug. 12 – Jan. 13.
