Thousands of dollars of art stolen from Riverfront Park


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV)- Three pieces from Riverfront Park's sculpture garden were stolen this week. The price? Close to $30,000 lost.

The city's Department of Parks and Recreation said this has not happened in years. "We only had one surveillance camera in the garden," said Truman Tolfree, director of Parks and Recreation.

The city has worked with a committee that throughout the years has donated more than $2 million worth of sculptures. There are more than forty pieces spread around the garden.

The three pieces stolen were made of bronze with copper detail. "Because of the incident we're adding more signs, we're adding additional lights and trimming the tress to clear the view in the park."

Historic gown collection to undergo conservation process; may be removed from public exhibit

Historic gown collection to undergo conservation process; may be removed from public exhibit

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (OSHM) - The Old State House Museum’s First Ladies’ Gown collection, which contains over 120 years of inaugural gowns worn by Arkansas’s First Ladies, will temporarily close to the public on September 8, 2014, so the gowns can be assessed for conservation needs. The last day to see the collection before the assessment is September 7, 2014.

“The Arkansas First Ladies Gowns at the Old State House Museum are, through the years, our most popular artifacts,” said Bill Gatewood, director of the Old State House Museum. ”Our responsibility to preserve the gowns yet make them accessible to the public creates a very challenging situation.  The Museum staff's decision to begin conservation of the gowns exhibit must balance both considerations.”
