There's no doubt Arkansas is known for its lush natural features, but those who know Little Rock know it's a rare tapestry of art, philanthropy and community — and yes, its lush natural features.

In honor of that tapestry, we set out to explore the various displays of art in our fair city. What we found goes beyond long, gleaming halls and high ceilings and dives into the intimate showrooms tucked into sleepy streets and the larger-than-life murals that become the familiar decor of our daily lives.

Sketches and sculptures, pastels and portraits, international and neighborhood artists, you’ll find it all in our comprehensive guide to Little Rock art galleries and public art.

In Argenta, a mural by Emily Moll Wood depicting some of Little Rock's best-known names in music — think Rodney Block, Genine LaTrice Perez — has popped up in the alley behind Acansa Gallery.
