Opera in the Rock Scalia/Ginsburg Gift Guide

Hoping this third time is a charm…

After two postponements and related rescheduling, Opera in the Rock is pleased to present a new season with Scalia/Ginsburg: An Opera by Derrick Wang in partnership with the Clinton Foundation.

In celebration of live opera returning to Central Arkansas and our love of all things Scalia/Ginsburg, we’ve curated an exclusive gift guide of supreme importance for Ginsburg groupies + opera enthusiasts. Most items are sourced or made locally; all are independent local boutiques and crafters.

Purchase tickets for Scalia/Ginsburg: An Opera by Derrick Wang to one of the five performances, August 26-29: www.operaintherock.org/events.

This one-act comical opera is at the Clinton Presidential Center.

M2 Gallery

Inspired by her fascination with body language and the female experience, MILKDADD’s often-evolving style never seems to fit into one category – yet her obsession with the female face remains a constant. She works on several mediums including spray paint, chalk, charcoal and bold acrylics.




Lisa Krannichfeld
Lisa Krannichfeld utilizes her childhood experiences with two intermixing cultures + traditions in her work, which focuses on the woman. Her expressive portraits refute the traditional portrayal of women being passive subjects to gaze upon, evident in their confrontational, and at times defiant expressions. Lisa uses traditional Chinese ink and watercolor materials in a nontraditional way with mixed materials.


Michael Schaeffer
His stylized portraits confront the idea of personal identity and social status within American culture.  His latest series Touched by the Hand of God addresses the concept of social status with a nod to the style of rococo + a modern hand. This New York native currently resides in Little Rock.
