Arkansas highlights

Photographs by ©Anne Marchand

We're back in DC for the New Year Celebrations. We got our fill of the rolling Ouachita mountains in Southwest Arkansas, visited the William J. Clinton Presidential Center in Little Rock which boasts a Dale Chihuly sculpture and Clinton's memorabilia in the Presidential Library.Little Rock, the geographical center of the state, is the hub of business, arts, government and healthcare in Arkansas.

The William J. Clinton Presidential Center and Park is the perfect addition to what was already a diverse offering of museums, unique shops, and other neighborhood attractions. Located on the banks of the Arkansas River in downtown Little Rock’s River Market District, the Clinton Center houses the largest archival collection in American Presidential history. Designed by award-winning architect James Polshek and his firm, Polshek Partnership of New York, the main building takes the form of a glass bridge symbolizing President Clinton’s theme of “Building a Bridge to the 21st Century.”

Exhibits in the 20,000-square-foot museum are designed by Ralph Appelbaum and Associates of New York. Among its numerous notable achievements, Appelbaum and Associates created the powerful exhibits at the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C.
