"Cloth as Community: Hmong Textiles in America" is a traveling exhibit that is on display at John Brown University through Mar. 15. The exhibit includes 28 textiles like flower cloths and embroidered story clothes made by the Hmong community.

The 21st century's "concurrent abundance and scarcity" proves a deep well for artistic exploration in 'Labor&Materials,' the latest exhibition hosted by 21c Museum Hotel in Bentonville, offering blazing color, knowing kitsch, and a deep ambivalence towards a world in flux. 

This weekend is the third annual HeART of Rogers Craft Fair. The event hosts booths from local artisans and is open to the public from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. This year, visitors can browse crafts at two locations- the newly renovated Haas Hall Academy and the First United Methodist Church -both in historic, downtown Rogers.
