Rohwer and Jerome: Japanese American WWII Incarceration Camps in Arkansas

Between 1942 and 1945, over 16,000 Japanese Americans were incarcerated at Rohwer and Jerome, Arkansas. Inmates of all ages documented their experience using charcoal, watercolor, and pencil. The CALS Roberts Library is mounting the first large-scale exhibition of the Gould/Vogel Collection since 2018.
Sulac and SLUGKNIVES: Super Crush
Loft Gallery, CALS Galleries & Bookstore at Library Square, Roberts Library
Unveiling new artworks by local artists Sulac and SLUGKNIVES, this exhibition presents a split-screen reality check featuring works that prowl the edges of the art world like candy-colored heartworms. This is the perfect event to celebrate with your best Valentine friend or nemesis.
AnarchoAnachro by Sternodox Keckhaver
Spam enthusiast, U.S. Air Force veteran, and photo-collage artist the Right Reverend Sternodox wages holy war on inter-dimensional reptiles, killer klowns, and the soul-sucking blandness of daily life. His fascinating collages are a reflection of what happens if you stay up too late, drink only air, and consume highly charged free radicals. Masquerading during the day as mild-mannered media editor Michael Keckhaver for the CALS Encyclopedia of Arkansas, Sternodox brings order to chaos by manipulating visual lines of thought and light pulled from the metaverse and tethers it to our reality.
While you’re visiting downtown, experience the local vendors and restaurants in the River Market Entertainment District.
