Little Rock Central High School National Historic Site

2 mi. away
The nation watched the Little Rock Nine story unfold as nine black students attempted to enter the previously all-white school. With the help of television news, then in its infancy, the events commanded worldwide attention. Little Rock came to symbolize the federal government's commitment to eliminating separate systems of education for blacks and whites. The new National Historic Site Visitor Center opened in September 2007 to mark the 50th anniversary of the school's desegregation and is one of the most-visited Little Rock landmarks. It offers Little Rock Nine information through interactive exhibits commemorating the events and telling the Little Rock Nine story. When Little Rock Central High School was built in 1927, the American Institute of Architects named Central High School, "The Most Beautiful High School in America. The high school is still operating today and is the only functioning high school to be located within the boundary of a national historic site. Visit the Central High School Visitor Center to learn more Little Rock Nine information and history.

Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts

1 mi. away
The new Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts is being realized through a public-private partnership, starting with a $31 million commitment from the City of Little Rock. In 2016, a project to reimagine the Arkansas Arts Center began when Little Rock residents voted overwhelmingly in favor of a hotel-tax bond to reimagine the museum’s MacArthur Park building. Through a special capital fundraising campaign, private donations to the project have grown. At the museum's Grand Opening on April 22, 2023, Capital Campaign co-chairs Harriet and Warren Stephens announced a final campaign total of $170.8 million, which far exceeded the original project goal of $66 million. The campaign supports the construction of the new museum and provides transition and opening support, while also strengthening the endowment, yielding support for operations, exhibitions, acquisitions, and education and outreach programming in the new museum. AMFA extends gratitude to the Windgate Foundation, Harriet and Warren Stephens, and the Winthrop Rockefeller Trust for their transformative lead gifts to the campaign. The Windgate Art School, Harriet and Warren Stephens Galleries, and Governor Winthrop Rockefeller Lecture Hall are named in recognition of these lead gifts. In early 2021, a new chapter began. Paired with a stunning architectural design by Studio Gang, 11 acres of native landscape design by SCAPE, and construction project led by Nabholz, Pepper, and Doyne, a new vision for a new museum was revealed. This new vision continues the institution’s commitment to reach all Arkansans and honors its enduring roots as the original Museum of Fine Arts. As a new name was debuted, the Arkansas Arts Center officially became the Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts. AMFA extends a special thank you to our community of members and annual donors and supporters.
