Giving Guide: Historic Arkansas Museum Foundation

Living Craft Saturdays give visitors a chance to interact with costumed staff and learn about historic trades like letterpress printing.

MISSION

Creating spaces where the curious can learn, the maker can make and the adventurer can explore is part of what drives the Historic Arkansas Museum Foundation Board. In supporting the museum’s mission, the Foundation raises money for the fun stuff.

The Foundation supports Living Craft Saturdays, Camp Historic Arkansas, 2nd Friday Art Night, the Nog-off, annual events like the Christmas Frolic, and free field trips for school groups. It also raises money to purchase Arkansas Made for the museum’s outstanding collection of fine and decorative art that spans hundreds of years and includes contemporary art made by Arkansas artists. The fun stuff.
