Arkansas Arts Center Riverdale Location to close

Dear Patron,

The Arkansas Arts Center continues to monitor the constantly shifting situation regarding the spread of COVID-19. Following guidance from the City of Little Rock and public health officials, the Arkansas Arts Center’s Riverdale location will be closed to the public starting close of business on Friday, March 13 and remain closed until further notice.

Your health and the health of our staff is our highest priority at this time. We have been taking proactive precautionary measures for the past several weeks, including implementing rigorous cleaning routines and staying up to date on Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Arkansas Department of Health recommendations. While we don’t currently have any confirmed cases of COVID-19 connected to the AAC, we believe this time calls for us to postpone or minimize gatherings while maintaining the cleanest environment possible. We want to take all prudent steps to ensure a safe and healthy environment for our community.

All programming through March 30 is canceled or postponed. We are continuing to closely monitor the situation, and will make updates about future programming in the coming weeks.

Below is a list of programs that are canceled or postponed:

Friday, March 13 – Monday, March 16: Museum School classes and workshops
