In addition to the annual October Daze festival and 50th annual Arkansas Marathon here in Booneville this weekend, here are a few of the things going on in, or a short distance from South Logan County in the coming days.

Fall Foliage Walk

Meet at the Brown Springs Picnic Area at Mount Magazine State Park at 9 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 14 and take an easy, guided walk to search for magnificent vistas from the edges of high cliffs overlooking a vast landscape as leaves begin to shed their green hues. This trail is not on park brochures. Admission is free.


The Arkansas Arts Center Artmobile, one of only a handful of mobile art museums in the nation, will roll into the Fort Smith Regional Art Museum for a stay from Oct. 9 through 13.

“Who What Wear”, the Arkansas Arts Center Artmobile’s 2018-2019 traveling exhibition, explores the use of clothing as an expression of identity and meaning.

From a plain white t-shirt to an haute-couture evening gown, every piece of clothing is conceived through the artistic imagination of a designer. Both visual art and fashion tell stories through images and convey meaning through visual language, but fashion is an art which is lived. As soon as we don an item of clothing, we become a part of its story and it a part of ours. We give garments their meaning and they in turn help us to develop an identity that is then projected onto the world stage. Who What Wear presents a tailored collection of original artworks from the Arkansas Arts Center’s permanent collection. While engaging with these diverse representations of clothing, viewers are invited to try on the idea that who they are is reflected in what they wear.

The Artmobile will be open to the community at RAM from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. now through Oct. 13.
