DESCRIPTION

Ever since artists first painted the walls of the caves at Lascaux, France, humans have recorded their place on the Earth and attempted to make order of the beasts and other peoples that inhabit it. Earthly Delights contains highlights from the Arkansas Arts Center’s extensive collection of Modern and Contemporary art—including a number of recent acquisitions as well as works that have not been viewed in some time—that explore this theme. Featuring such diverse works as a drawing of Adam and Eve by Fernando Botero (Colombian, born 1932) to an abstract monumental sculpture by Louise Nevelson (American, born Russia, 1899-1988), the more than thirty works on display in the exhibition encourage visitors to find the connections between them and to ponder their own relation to the Earth and their surroundings.
