Ways to Connect

The Arts Center of the Ozarks in downtown Springdale has been a staple of the community for the last 50 years. The community organization provides arts classes for all ages, hosts theatrical performances and houses a gallery for local artists. 

The fifth annual Kessler Trail Run is set for this Saturday at 9 am. The run is sponsored by the Fayetteville Natural Heritage Association and helps raise money for the Kessler Mountain Reserve- a 386-acre public nature site- which the City of Fayetteville purchased in 2014. 

Sim Barrow and Dana Smith from the Kessler Trail Run planning committee talk to Pete Hartman about changes to this year's course and what runners can expect. 

Artist Andrew Bell from Compassion Fayetteville discusses his art exhibition, "A Voyage in Visual Metaphors: From NYC to NWA," in honor of domestic violence awareness month. The exhibition is on display through October 27 at various locations. A portion of the proceeds will benefit organizations serving children and families.
