Last week, we launched the second volume of The Scout Guide Northwest Arkansas. To celebrate the guide’s debut, Editor Rebekah Lawrence hosted an “Art is Our Heart”-themed party and art exhibition for members and friends at the University of Arkansas  School of Art + Sculpture Studio (SCUL), located within the newly appointed Windgate Art & Design District in Fayetteville.

Guests enjoyed energetic tunes spun by DJ Tony Gray while perusing the remarkable works scattered throughout multiple galleries and grad students’ art studios. Revelers nibbled on tasty bites and sipped speciality cocktails while poring over the new publication. A highlight of the evening was lauding the winner of the “Cover Color Contest.” Pure Barre Fayetteville chose correctly: red!
