The arts are for everyone, and we are so excited to open the new Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts. Let your creativity flourish in spacious new studio classrooms, find inspiration in new lecture, theater and program spaces, and experience the wonder of art in the galleries.
At AMFA, you’ll find opportunities to experience the visual and performing arts through a full calendar of exhibitions, programs, and events. The new AMFA is dedicated to creating bold, dynamic and engaging arts experiences for all.
In newly designed Harriet and Warren Stephens Galleries, explore dynamic, world-class special exhibitions and see works from AMFA Foundation Collection, many of which have not been on view in decades.
In the new Windgate Art School, join workshops and classes in studios designed specifically for drawing, painting, ceramics, woodworking, printmaking, glass, metals, and more. Classes are offered for both youth and adults – and for students of all skill and experience levels.
Join engaging artist talks, films, and live performance in the theater or Governor Winthrop Rockefeller Lecture Hall, both featuring upgraded technology, acoustics, and comfortable seating.
Gather for a pop-up concert, artist talk, family-friendly program, or get-together in a glass-enclosed, light-filled community gathering space. As programming spills outdoors, enjoy festivals, concerts, films, and events on the museum grounds.
After our grand opening, building tours will highlight the innovative design, materials, and landscaping of the new Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts.
The Storied Collections of Judy Onofrio
As a child, artist Judy Onofrio collected odds and ends from the beaches and boardwalks. As an adult, her fascination with objects transformed her artistic practice. Onofrio’s Just Pretending – from the Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts Foundation Collection – is currently on view at the Hillary Rodham Clinton Children’s Library and Learning Center in Little Rock.
