First Ever Thea Arts Festival Debuts in Argenta

The first ever Thea Arts Festival is this
weekend ( April 28) from 10-6 on Main Street in the Argenta Arts District of
North Little Rock. The free festival celebrates the arts and money raised
through sponsorship of the festival helps support the arts in schools across

Around 30 artists from Arkansas (including
Jane Hankins, V.L. Cox, Fletcher Larkin, and Jennifer Wilson) will be on hand
to display their work during the event. Dance performances from Ballet Arkansas, live painting
and sculpture demos, hands on arts activities, food, and live music ( including
performances by the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra String Quartet, Michael
Eubanks,  and more musicians
throughout the day) are also scheduled for the day. 


If you are planning to go, a quick heads up that Main Street will be blocked to traffic from
Broadway to Sixth Street, but the trolley will still be running. Local
businesses will also be open.

The event is part of the THEA Foundation,  a nonprofit, public
foundation founded in 2001 by the parents of Thea Kay Leopoulos, Linda and Paul
David Leopoulos. The goal of the foundation is to carry Thea’s legacy forward through advocating the importance of the arts
in the development of youth and to encourage individual participation in art.
