If you have an extra 21 hours and 29 minutes, and an extra 68 gallons or so of gas, you could make the drive to see Heber Springs, Arkansas.
But if you have neither of these things, I have excellent news: something very cool is happening at the UMFA tonight.
Beginning at 7:00pm, you could have the chance to hear from our Art of Utah and the West curator, Donna Poulton, and see the West Film Screening of Disfarmer: A Portrait of America.
In the small mountain town of Heber Springs, Arkansas, portrait photographer Mike Disfarmer captured the lives and emotions of the people of rural America during the two World Wars and the Great Depression. This lecture and documentary film situate Disfarmer as an American master by focusing on his influence in the modern Manhattan art world and the legacy he left behind in his hometown of Heber Springs.

Don’t go to Arkansas. Come to us, instead.
