Broadway Box, by Kathy Thompson
“We wanted a project that involved an artist from the community who had a history with Walton Arts Center. In Kathy Thompson, we found an artist who is passionate, curious, and engaged with the community. Thompson is a teacher, arts advocate, activist, mother, grandmother, entrepreneur, critical thinker, explorer and collector. Her civic engagement coupled with her artistic accomplishments made her the perfect fit for this project.” - Jenni Swain, VP of Programs at Walton Arts Center
Kathy Thompson has become known for her H Boxes, mixed-media boxes that arrange treasured artifacts into dynamic and resonant compositions. These richly textured and inventive works explore the intersection of objects, history, memory and the formal language of assemblage.
Walton Arts Center commissioned Ms. Thompson to create an original project inspired by archival study, memorabilia and responses from patrons, staff and the arts community. This exhibition honors the past and celebrates the 20-year impression of Walton Arts Center on the cultural landscape of Northwest Arkansas.
