John Bell, Jr.’s iconic paintings of historic Fort Smith are worth a thousand words, or however many it takes to fill an entire history book. Join us at RAM as we peer a little closer and hear historical perspectives of the buildings and scenes Bell documented with his paintbrush. Local historians and representatives of landmarks will share entertaining details of the “who, how, and what” of these pillars of the city’s historic charm.

Free, in RAM’s community studio, on Sundays at 2 p.m.
