The Springdale Art Initiative was formally founded in May of 2014 with the goal of bringing more public art into the city of Springdale, Arkansas.
As the Northwest Arkansas Region continues to expand, so do the opportunities for public art. We are excited to bring an entirely new level of awareness of art in public spaces that will give all of us just one more reason to invest in our beloved town. Below is a list of our completed and current projects. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any partnership ideas, suggestions or questions.

Upstream Art Storm Drain Murals – We are collaborating with the Upstream Art program to join the Springdale Senior Center and the Archer Learning Center for an exciting, 4-drain series to be completed in April 2015 in Downtown Springdale. The Springdale Art Initiative will facilitate the High School students and the art class at the Senior Center to come up with a cohesive design to cover the 4 drains that sit adjacent to each of their properties. More details and photos coming soon.
The Quilt Project – We have partnered with local sign writer, Olivia Trimble of Sleet City Signwriting, to develop hand-painted, large scale, 8×8′ quilt blocks to be on display throughout Springdale. We are working with The Shiloh Museum of Ozark History to find traditional quilt blocks that are historically significant to the Ozark regions. We will be taking these traditional patterns and applying contemporary colors. Below is a photograph of our prototype.
