Arkansas County artists are needed to create quilt blocks for the county’s Arkansas Quilt Trails project. A quilt trail is a series of painted wood quilt squares that are usually hung on a barn or a similar structure. Quilt blocks are traditionally seen in the country, but Gena Seidenschwarz, Director of Museum of the Arkansas Grand Prairie, said any Arkansas County resident, regardless of their location, can participate in the project.
“You will have a chance to be a part of a statewide effort to promote tourism to this area with some really interesting, historically valid and beautiful pieces of art that we will create ourselves as a community,” Seidenschwarz said. “You do not have to live anywhere or have any special circumstances to participate. The main criteria are the agreements that you will make to allow people to view your project.” READ MORE.
