LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - We'd like to wish a happy anniversary to a group that's been working in communities all over Little Rock for 100 years now.
The Little Rock Rotary Club, also known as Club 99, is celebrating a century of service. Monday, they teamed up with another Arkansas Group celebrating a milestone; the Arkansas Arts Center is celebrating 50 years. For the celebration, a painting by Pat Matthews was unveiled by Rotary Club president, Sharon Tallach Vogelpohl.
"The painting, I think, encompasses the energy and dynamism that is the Rotary and all of its facets and all of its international reach," said Todd Herman, executive director of the Arkansas Arts Center.
In addition to the unveiling of Matthews' painting, an exhibit, Rembrandt, Van Dyck, Gainsborough: The Treasures of Kenwood House, London, is also on display. The exhibit will be available until Sept. 08 and features 48 works of art from Kenwood House.
