What to know
The Smithsonian Traveling Exhibit Celebrating the Invention of the American Backyard is coming to the Delta Cultural Center. These are the perennial signs of a suburban summer: the smell of hot dogs on the grill, the sound of a mower on a Saturday afternoon, pool parties and get-togethers on the patio. The Smithsonian explores the evolution from the front porch to the outdoor living room in "Patios, Pools, & the Invention of the American Backyard." The new travelling exhibition will be on view at the Delta Cultural Center in Helena, Arkansas, April 8, 2021 through October 5, 2021.
