The Arkansas Committee of the National Museum of Women in the Arts presents their 5th exhibition of Arkansas Women to Watch in 2021. The theme is Paper, used inventively, not just as a ground. The theme was chosen by the National Museum of Women in the Arts, where Joli Livaudais (Photography, UA Little Rock) is currently representing Arkansas in this highly regarded biennial Women to Watch which runs through January 18, 2021 in the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C.
Paper Routes offers two unusual opportunities to enrich the visitor experience: origami is of interest to educators because it teaches geometry and paper-making is of statewide interest as an industry as well as being a medium for making art.
The exhibition is underwritten by the Arkansas Committee of the National Museum of Women in the Arts, thanks to grants and gifts from champions of women’s art.
