As part of Constitution Weekend, we’re filling the galleries with discussions, artmaking, and more to explore themes of freedom, justice, and civic engagement presented in our nation’s founding documents. Come see an original print of the US Constitution as part of free exhibition We the People: The Radical Notion of Democracy, then join the conversation as artists, legal experts, activists, and more share their unique perspectives on the question, “What does the Constitution mean to me?”
We’ll also be hosting family-friendly artmaking; live performances by Flyover Dance Collective; live music curated by our partner KUAF Radio, including performances by rapper EDDIE Canyon, Latin/R&B singer Pura Coco, Sarah Lily, Josh Noren, and DJ Raquel; a forum to meet local civic organizations, and more throughout the museum.
Free, no tickets required. Drop by anytime from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
What does the Constitution mean to you? On September 16 and 17, we invite you to join artists, scholars, and civic organizations for a weekend commemorating the enduring impact of our nation’s founding documents with artmaking, conversation, performances, and more.

Pura Coco, alternative R&B singer, released her EP, Leaves, in 2019.
Born in New York City, based in Northwest Arkansas, she takes both her Latin culture and her Southern upbringing to create her unique sound. This passionate young writer and vocalist continuously works on her craft to convey a multitude of emotions and further connect with people through her music.
1 pm: Eddie Canyon
As the collective attention span shrinks, Eddie Canyon finds himself searching for meaning within the noise. Reaching into and around his Arkansas roots, Eddie carves a distinctively southern Hip-hop undercurrent in his exploratory approach to music. Weaving tales of battling addiction, thoughts on spirituality, and irreverent social commentary into his lyrics, Eddie aims to intrigue his audience at the least, and at most, leave them with a liberating degree of thoughtfulness. In his own words: The Matrix is real, but there’s a way out.
2 pm: DJ Raquel
Despite her age, Raquel is a force to be reckoned with. She started DJing at age 11, and her love for the art only grew stronger with each passing year of experience. She lets her passion for spreading good energy and belief in music’s ability to bring people together guide her, and with that, she mixes and intertwines genres to take people out of the current reality they’re in and into a world of pure euphoria.
3 pm: Josh Noren
Born in Paradise California and raised in Northwest Arkansas, Josh started playing guitar at 12 years of age. Josh developed an inspiration for songwriting and recording as a sophomore in high school. Josh played coffee shop gigs all over Bentonville and Northwest Arkansas until he graduated college. He then moved to Nashville, Tennessee, to pursue a music career. As a solo artist, Josh has opened for Rick Springfield, Steve Miller Band, Jake Owen, sang the National Anthem at the PBR Tulsa, and played Fire Fly Fest Dover DE for thousands of people. After six years in Nashville, Josh is back in Northwest Arkansas laying down roots, teaching guitar, and planning his next music project. Find his released songs anywhere music is found and check out his music videos on Youtube.
