Elsewhere in entertainment, events and the arts this weekend:
ART: ‘Delta Voices’
The first of three video segments of “Delta Voices: Artists of the Mid-South,” highlighting the work of sculptor Renata Cassiano Alvarez and painters Vaughn Davis Jr. and John Isiah Walton, goes on display online Wednesday via the Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts YouTube channel, youtube.com/c/arkansasmuseumoffinearts. Subsequent “episodes” will debut Aug. 31 and Sept. 7. The virtual exhibition will be up indefinitely.
The videos represent the 2022 edition of the museum’s “Delta Exhibition,” which since 1958 has “heightened the visibility of artists in the region and reflected shifts in the cultural landscape,” according to a news release. It has evolved from an annual juried exhibition at the Arkansas Arts Center into this collaborative virtual series during the institution’s transformation into the Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts. It’s in partnership with regional museums: Alvarez’ and Davis’ works with the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis; Walton’s with the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans. It will become a triennial exhibition once the museum reopens, now scheduled to happen in spring 2023.
The Arkansas Cinema Society hosts a screening of “Delta Voices: Artists of the Mid-South” and panel discussion with the artists, Aug. 31 at the Ron Robinson Theater, 100 River Market Ave., Little Rock. Doors open at 6 p.m. for a pre-screening reception. Admission is free; reservations are encouraged. Visit arkansascinemasociety.org.
