Arkansas history is full of rich cultures. Fusion: Arts + Humanities Arkansas is a new educational program designed to enrich the teaching of our state's heritage and culture and celebrate our human achievement through programs in history, literature, philosophy, civics, and other disciplines. To achieve these goals, the Clinton Center convened cultural insitutions, historians, and community organizations to plan and execute an annual program featuring a series of events highlighting one theme from Arkansas's history and culture.
In February 2017, the inaugural Fusion: Arts + Humanities Arkansas program focused on the Quapaw Tribe -- Arkansas's namesake. The program featured symposia, professional development workshops, musical and theatrical performances, as well as a museum exhibition with the goal of bringing forth new perspectives and insight into Native American history and culture. This exhibit that features Quapaw cultural artifacts will be on display at the Clinton Center until March 12.
Thank you to the Quapaw Tribe for their support of Fusion: Arts + Humanities Arkansas.
