Rachel and Blake have selected a handful of books to share with ties to artworks found at the museum, with a specific focus on artworks found in the Contemporary Art galleries.

Rachel Stuckey Slaton is the co-owner of Two Friends Books. A born-again Arkansan and University of Arkansas alum, she moved to Bentonville after working in media and politics in New York City and Washington DC. When she’s not in the bookstore or reading, you can often find her riding a cargo bike downtown with two little kids, discussing the merits of genre fiction, or procrastinating on gardening tasks.
Blake Worthey is a Black American, dance-theater and teaching artist from Memphis, Tennessee. Currently, he is interested in how the dialectical technologies inherent in creative spaces can inform the building of a more equitable world outside of our artistic lives. His training includes a BFA in dance performance (University of Arkansas-Little Rock), Modus Operandi (Vancouver,BC), Orsalina 28 (Italy) and imitating various dance and kung fu movies circa 2004. Most recently he directed more like a hot pot less like a salad, a collaborative performance as part of the Live in America Festival.
