Art in its Natural State

To know why Arkansas is the Natural State, all one needs to do is take a short trip to Petit Jean Mountain. From impressive views of the Arkansas River Valley, to lakes and rivers, and wide fields and towering pines, Petit Jean offers a wonderful snapshot of Arkansas’ natural beauty. It’s no wonder that Petit Jean has also called to artists throughout the years, from Native American cave art all the way to modern day painters, sculptors and writers.

To celebrate that rich history and add to the artistic legacy of Petit Jean, we here at the Institute are partnering with Petit Jean State Park to host the first Art in its Natural State competition. We have worked with the Park to identify serval sites on our respective campuses that not only exemplify Petit Jean’s varied landscapes, but would also be a great spot for public art. Our contest challenges artists to design temporary, site-specific outdoor works for those areas. The best fit for the competition will likely be structural, sculptural or landscape art, but all designed public art will be considered. You can see all of the sites up for design here.

The artwork will be displayed in its outdoor site for up to one year, then taken down by the artist. The focus for the competition is a balance between the visual appeal of the created artwork and the natural beauty of the space it is designed for. The works must also have neutral impact to the site in which they are installed, meaning that after the works are removed and the area is allowed time to recover, it will be as if there was never any art installed at all.

The temporary nature of the installations is both respectful to Petit Jean’s environment and allows for artists to use creative materials that they might not otherwise work with. A bronze statue will withstand many decades of display, but our more ephemeral artworks needn’t be quite that durable. Though the works that are designed need to stand up to a year of seasonal weather, we hope that artists will incorporate recycled or recyclable materials for their work.  

We will take applications until September of this year, after which point all of the submitted designs will be considered by our judging and advisory panel. Made up of representatives from the Arkansas Arts Council; Arkansas Arts Center; Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism; Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art; University of Arkansas, Fayetteville; University of Arkansas at Fort Smith; University of Arkansas at Little Rock; the Park; and the Institute, our panel will select 10 winning designs. Those designs will be funded by a $5,000-per-artist stipend to cover the creation of the artwork and its transportation and installation on Petit Jean in March of 2018.

Although focused on the natural beauty of Petit Jean Mountain, the Art in its Natural State competition is open to all Southern and Arkansas regional artists. That includes artists from Arkansas, Alabama, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, West Virginia and Virginia. If you or someone you know is interested in entering the competition, the official rules and application guidelines for the competition can be found here

As we select winners and install the art, we’ll have plenty of updates here and on the Art in its Natural State page. Look for profiles of the winning artists, sneak peeks of the artwork and plenty of photos of the opening event on Saturday, March 10, 2018. Even better than seeing the art online, of course, will be to visit the art in person. We’ll have eight installed pieces at the Institute through March 2019, and the Park will host two installed works through July of 2018. We hope you’ll join us as we celebrate Arkansas’ beauty and the talents of Southern artists with the first Art in its Natural State competition.

Winthrop Rockefeller Institute releases 2017 culinary class lineup

PETIT JEAN MOUNTAIN, Ark. (Nov. 7, 2016) — The 2017 schedule of culinary classes at the Winthrop Rockefeller Institute was recently released and can be accessed at www.rockefellerinstittue.org/culinary.

The culinary classes, led by Certified Executive Chef Robert Hall, offer a variety of experiences for aspiring chefs of all skill levels – from “I’ve been cooking all my life” to “How do you boil water again?”

Returning to the culinary lineup is the ever-popular Table for Two, a date-night experience in which couples learn to cook a delicious four-course dinner under the instruction of Chef Hall. Other favorites like Made From Scratch – a demonstration class centered around specific culinary themes – and the Saturday Chef Series – a more hands-on approach to various culinary styles – are also back.

New to the 2017 lineup is Taste Test, a demonstration class in which participants will have the opportunity to taste styles of a particular ingredient from all over the world. Some of the ingredients that will be featured include hot sauce, chocolate, olive oil, tomatoes and bacon.

“The world is a cornucopia of flavor,” Hall said. “With this new class, we get to explore the amazing ways that different cultures treat the same ingredients. It promises to be a lot of fun, very yummy, and we’ll learn some things along the way.”

All of the Institute’s culinary offerings are listed at www.rockefellerinstitute.org/culinary, with links to registration for each category of class. Group reservations are available, and classes are perfect for a girls’ (or guys’) night out, a church or civic group activity, part of a weekend getaway or just because.

Beyond entertainment, the Institute’s culinary classes are intended to be informative and to strip away common fears and misconceptions about cooking.

“One of the central purposes of the Institute’s culinary program is to show how easy it is to cook from scratch,” Hall said. “It is my desire to help individuals and families return to ‘old-fashioned,’ ‘do-it-yourself,’ ‘made from scratch’ meal preparation. This will drastically reduce the use of processed foods, thus immediately making our diets healthier.

“By learning and using a handful of culinary techniques and methods, you can cook almost anything; it is my mission to provide you with several avenues to learn and master those skills.”

Where others saw a barn, she saw a story

It doesn’t just take an extraordinary amount of vision to think you can take a rundown barn and turn it into a top tourist destination; it takes an epic amount of work and no small dash of chutzpah. Neither was a problem for Dr. Ruth Hawkins when she took on the project of the Hemingway-Pfeiffer House in Piggott, Ark. Now if you’re a film buff, you’ll know that Piggott is where Eliza Kazan shot A Face in the Crowd starring Andy Griffith (before his eponymous television show), but in fact its place in history was cemented much earlier as the home of Earnest Hemingway’s second wife, Pauline Pfeiffer. Papa would visit Piggott in the 1930s, and the family turned the barn into a writing studio for Hemingway. It’s there where he wrote much of his epic A Farewell to Arms.

The story of the community and the site needed a champion. Locals knew of the visits and the writing, but sometimes it takes an outsider to help a place appreciate long overlooked jewels. That’s who Ruth Hawkins is – the kind of person who can see things others can’t. Where others saw an old barn, Ruth saw a story. She knows that heritage means business, but it has to be shined and made ready for the public. Today, the Hemingway Pfeiffer House is a destination for tourists all around. It’s the best example of the many, many jewels she’s found and cultivated throughout her beloved Arkansas Delta. It’s the best because she wasn’t simply satisfied in making the place a tourist destination. No, she had to go on and become a Hemingway scholar, presenting at conferences across the world and authoring the only book on Pauline, Unbelievable Happiness and Final Sorrow.

She’s the driving force of the restoration and major storyteller behind Lakeport Plantation in Lake Village, the only remaining antebellum plantation home on the Mississippi; she’s responsible for the Southern Tennent Farmers’ Museum in Tyronza, which tells the story of sharecropping and the organized farm labor movement; she is responsible for helping keep alive the story of Arkansas’ Japanese Internment Camp at Rohwer, where future Star Trek star George Takei was imprisoned; as well as the Historic Dyess Colony: Johnny Cash Boyhood Home. There’s more. She’s a member of the Arkansas Tourism Hall of Fame, Arkansas Tourism Person of the Year, she’s won a National Trust for Historic Preservation Honor Award as well as Preserve Arkansas’s Parker Westbrook Lifetime Achievement Award. The list goes on. If you want to learn how to capitalize on the heritage of your community, there is no better person in the world to learn from than Ruth Hawkins. She’ll be at the Winthrop Rockefeller Institute Friday from noon to 2 p.m. Get your tickets at https://ruthhawkinsuncommoncommunities.eventbrite.com.

Winthrop Rockefeller Institute to host performance of Twelfth Night

PETIT JEAN MOUNTAIN, Ark. (June 1, 2016) — The Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre will once again take its show on the road and perform a family-friendly production at the Winthrop Rockefeller Institute. This year’s offering, Twelfth Night, will be performed at 7 p.m. Saturday, June 25, on the Institute’s front lawn.

“We’ve appreciated the great crowds and beautiful atmosphere at the Institute the past two years,” said Mary Ruth Marotte, executive director of the Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre. “This year’s performance will feature our actors playing musical instruments and singing as part of the production. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”

Additionally, food trucks from the Conway Food Truck Association will be on hand with food and drinks available for purchase. As in past years, attendees are welcome to spread out blankets or bring their own lawn chairs for the performance, though plenty of seating will be available. Outside food will be allowed, though no outside alcoholic beverages will be permitted.

“This is the kind of event we know Winthrop Rockefeller would be proud of,” said Janet Harris, director of programs at the Winthrop Rockefeller Institute. “We have thoroughly enjoyed working with the Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre to provide access to a unique artistic experience here in the River Valley.”

The Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre’s website, www.arkshakes.com, offers this description of the performance:

“Inspired by carnivals of yesteryear, our actors will arrive ready to dazzle and delight the audience with the tale of twins Viola and Sebastian, separated by a storm at sea. The shipwrecked siblings discover new places, meet new people, and explore new possibilities as they try to find their way back to one another. Feste is our ringleader, a magician who brings the play to life by enlisting the talents of his gifted and colorful troop of entertainers in this fast-paced, funny and family-friendly production. With a performance that includes sword-fighting, dancing and singing (and maybe a few audience members!), Twelfth Night has a little something spectacular for everyone.”

Admission to the performance is free, but advance registration is required. Those wishing to register themselves and/or friends and family should go to www.rockefellerinstitute.org/night and click on the registration button.

Winthrop Rockefeller Institute to host Champion Trees exhibit

PETIT JEAN MOUNTAIN, Ark. (May 26, 2016) — Linda Williams Palmer’s Champion Trees art exhibit will be on display at the Winthrop Rockefeller Institute from June 3 through the end of August.

The exhibit, which first toured the state from 2012-2014, will open at 2 p.m. Friday, June 3, with a reception that is open to public and free of charge.

The focus of Palmer’s exhibit are the Champion Trees of Arkansas. Champion Trees are the largest of each species that grows in the state. They are measured and verified by the Arkansas Forestry Commission.

During the reception on June 3, Palmer will speak about the project and her ongoing work depicting the state’s Champion Trees. State Forester Joe Fox of the Forestry Commission will also speak.

“One of the most rewarding things about this has been when people come up to me and say, ‘I’ll never look at trees the same way again,’” Palmer said.

Palmer’s pieces are done in colored pencil and were the subject of the Arkansas Educational Television Network’s 2014 documentary film Champion Trees.

“In Arkansas, we have a unique connection to our natural resources,” said Janet Harris, director of programs at the Winthrop Rockefeller Institute. “This exhibit is a celebration of some of our most treasured resources – our trees.”

While there is no admission fee to attend the reception, registration is required. For more information about the exhibit and to register for the reception, visit www.rockefellerinstitute.org/institute-programs/trees.

St. John’s College Great Books Seminar coming to Winthrop Rockefeller Institute

PETIT JEAN MOUNTAIN, Ark. (April 30, 2015) — The Winthrop Rockefeller Institute is bringing the prestigious St. John’s College Great Books program to Arkansas.

Dr. Victoria Mora, vice president of St. John’s College in Santa Fe, N.M., will lead the seminar, which will be on William Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice and will take place Friday, June 12, through Saturday, June 13. The seminar will include sessions with Mora both days, plus meals and overnight accommodations at the Institute.

The seminar is open to anyone and requires no previous knowledge, beyond a careful reading of the text. Participants will be guided as they challenge and build upon one another’s ideas and search for meanings in the play that resonate with issues facing society today.

“A St. John’s seminar is, in a profound sense, an invitation,” Mora said. “It is an invitation to explore a work that has withstood the test of time because of its depth, beauty and insight into fundamental questions about our own humanity and about the way we are situated in the world. And it is an invitation to test our own ideas, and those of others – rationally, intuitively and in the thought-provoking activity of conversation that is anything but idle, anything but unimportant to how we live our lives and how we understand and shape the world around us.”

The seminar will precede a performance of the Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre at the Institute. The performance of As You Like It will take place the following weekend, on Saturday, June 20.

Dr. Marta Loyd, executive director of the Winthrop Rockefeller Institute, described the Great Books program as a unique way for important ideas to be discussed and analyzed – through the lens of classic literature.

“This is a one-of-a-kind experience that we hope many Arkansans will take advantage of,” Loyd said. “We are pleased that it worked out for the seminar to focus on The Merchant of Venice. June is shaping up to be the month of Shakespeare at the Institute.”

Shakespeare performance to return to Winthrop Rockefeller Institute

PETIT JEAN MOUNTAIN, Ark. (April 28, 2015) — This summer, all of the Winthrop Rockefeller Institute’s front lawn will be a stage.

On Saturday, June 20, the Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre will enact an outdoor performance of As You Like It at the Institute. The performance, which will be free and open to the public, will include the full plot of As You Like It abridged into a family-friendly version. While outdoor chairs will be set up at the Institute for the upcoming event, onlookers will also be able to utilize blanket space on the lawn depending on their preferences.

“The 2014 performance of A Comedy of Errors was a big success,” said Dr. Marta Loyd, executive director of the Institute. “We are proud to offer such an exceptional experience to the residents of Petit Jean Mountain, Morrilton and the rest of the Arkansas River valley.”

As You Like It is one of the four Shakespearean plays that the Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre is performing in its June 2015 lineup. Living up to its reputation, the play involves humor, brotherly contention, action, romance and even four eventual marriages.

The Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre, which has been featured in the New York Times, is no stranger to the Institute after the success of last year’s packed performance. It claims the title of the only professional Shakespeare company in Arkansas. Located in Conway, the theatre serves to both educate and entertain in its high-quality performances.

“Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre is thrilled to partner again with the Winthrop Rockefeller Institute to bring our one-hour adaptation of As You Like It to Petit Jean Mountain,” said Mary Ruth Marotte, executive director of the Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre. “The gorgeous grounds of the Institute provide the perfect backdrop to present this fun-filled romp through the forest of Arden. As You Like It is one of Shakespeare’s most hilarious comedies and will delight audiences of all ages.”

In the case of rain, the performance will be held in the Institute’s Show Barn Hall. Tickets can be reserved through the Winthrop Rockefeller Institute by visiting www.rockefellerinstitute.org/shakespeare.

Winthrop Rockefeller Institute to host seminar discussion of The Merchant of Venice by William Shakespeare in partnership with the St. John’s College Great Books Program

What happens when we read the works of science, history and literature that are the acknowledged gems of civilization? The written words through which great minds have expressed themselves? St. John’s College of Santa Fe, N.M., has turned this question into an answer: The Great Books Seminars. Through these seminars, St. John’s College employs the Socratic method of questions posed by a tutor highly trained for the task and answers plumbed by a small group of curious, engaged seminar participants. In this way, the big questions of life are explored and participants are encouraged to challenge one another and build on ideas presented by the group.

On June 12-13, the Winthrop Rockefeller Institute (WRI) will host a St. John’s College Great Books Seminar on William Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice. The seminar will be structured around a close reading and discussion of the great play.* The Institute-hosted seminar is open to everyone and presumes no previous knowledge or study of the text. Participants will be guided as they challenge and build upon one another’s ideas and search for meanings in the play that have resonance with today’s conundrums. Questions posed by the tutor might include: Who are the villains? Who are the victims? Who are the heroes? How do the plots of the play interconnect? What can we learn from Shakespeare that makes us more aware of human nature and how it operates in our society today?

This is a rare opportunity to join a Great Books Seminar. The Winthrop Rockefeller Institute, with its retreat atmosphere, is the perfect place to contemplate why a great work of the 16th century is important fodder for contemplation in the 21st century. 

Who: Winthrop Rockefeller Institute and St. John’s College of Santa Fe Great Books Program

When: June 12-13 at the Winthrop Rockefeller Institute on Petit Jean Mountain, Arkansas.

What: A pair of two-hour, small-group seminars on William Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice led by Victoria Mora, Ph.D., vice president of St. John’s College, Santa Fe; overnight accommodations at the Winthrop Rockefeller Institute, including meals, and all materials, including copies of the play and readers’ guides, needed for the seminar.

Date: Friday, June 12, through Saturday, June 13

Cost: $650 Full Package, including one night’s lodging

           $575 Without Lodging

           $50 Early Bird Discount when registering before May 20, 2015

Arts on the Mountain workshop to be held in March

PETIT JEAN MOUNTAIN, Ark. (Feb. 10, 2015) — The Winthrop Rockefeller Institute is proud to announce a fun and educational experience for artists on March 28-29. Arts on the Mountain: Landscape Painting with Sandra Luckett is open to all artists of intermediate experience and above who wish to increase their oil-painting skills.

The Saturday-to-Sunday program will include instruction from Luckett at the Institute’s Studio, which overlooks the Arkansas River Valley with Mount Nebo and Mount Magazine visible in the distance.

“Gov. Winthrop Rockefeller built the Studio for his wife, Jeanette, as her private art retreat,” said Dr. Marta Loyd, executive director of the Institute. “This spot has a rich history of inspiring the minds and spirits of Arkansas artists.”

The program will begin at 10 a.m. Saturday, March 28, with a 9 a.m. check-in time. Artists will be provided easels and a cradled gesso board on which to paint, but they will be expected to bring their own paints and brushes.

An art-inspired dinner on Saturday will be followed by a gallery reception in which all work created earlier in the day will be on display. After spending the night in the Institute’s President’s Lodge, participants will be treated to breakfast the following morning.

Luckett, an assistant professor of art at the University of Central Arkansas in Conway, holds a Master of Fine Art from Virginia Commonwealth University. Her work has been exhibited nationally at SCOPE Miami, the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art, the Wichita Art Museum, the Urban Institute of Contemporary Art (Grand Rapids, Mich.) and numerous venues in New York.

Luckett has been awarded the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Fellowship, the Pollak Emerging Artist Award and, most recently, was named an “Artist to Watch” by the National Museum for Women in the Arts.

“I am inspired by the natural beauty that exists atop Petit Jean Mountain,” Luckett said. “This will truly be a weekend to remember.”

Winthrop Rockefeller Institute to host performance of Shakespeare

PETIT JEAN MOUNTAIN, Ark. (May 14, 2014) — Shakespeare is coming to Petit Jean Mountain.

The Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre will present its performance of The Comedy of Errors at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, June 28, on the front lawn of the Winthrop Rockefeller Institute. The one-hour, family-friendly performance will be followed by a question-and-answer session with the cast. The performance is free and open to the public, though reservations are required and can be made by emailing theresa@uawri.org or by calling 501-727-6220.

The show will be the last in a sequence of on-the-road productions for the Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre, which will perform The Comedy of Errors in North Little Rock and in Bentonville earlier in June.

In this gleeful adaptation geared toward young audiences, The Comedy of Errors offers double the fun as two sets of long-lost twins cause chaos and comedy by ending up in the same place at the same time. Their grossly mistaken identities lead to trouble in love and with the law.

Dr. Marta Loyd, executive director of the Winthrop Rockefeller Institute, said the performance will be a fun event for the communities on and surrounding Petit Jean Mountain.
