Sixth annual Art in Architecture: Historic Homes of Conway May 8

The University of Central Arkansas’s Baum Gallery of Fine Art will host a reception for the sixth annual Art in Architecture: Historic Homes of Conway exhibition on Sunday, May 8, from 1-3 p.m.
The reception and opening in the Gallery, located in McCastlain Hall, are free and open to the public.
The competitive exhibition features artworks by area K-12 students based on historic homes in Conway built between 1875 and 1925. Participating schools include Conway Public, St. Joseph Parochial, Conway Christian, The Art School, Greenbrier, Guy-Perkins, Mt. Vernon-Enola and Vilonia.  Juroring on April 23 will finalize the participants.
The Baum Gallery opening is a single-day event. Students will then take their work home or sign a release for it to be exhibited in the Conway City Hall space.
The Art in Architecture competitive is sponsored by the Old Conway Preservation Society and the Faulkner County Historical Society. It was originally underwritten with a grant from the Department of Arkansas Heritage in 2006 in celebration of Arkansas Heritage Month.
Nancy Mitchell, vice president of the Old Conway Preservation Society, directs the competitive and said the purpose of the competition was to instill a love and respect for the cultural and historic heritage that exists within Faulkner County and introduce students to elements of architectural design.
