Museum & Buildings
Trails and Grounds open daily sunrise to sunset.
The trails and museum will be closed June 6 – 8 for private events. The North Forest Trail will remain open to the public at these times.
Experience your museum in a new way, surrounded by art and nature and awash in music.
Join us in the Contemporary Galleries for an evening of clarinet quartet music with the C4 Ensemble, presented by Trillium Salon Series. The performance will feature rarely heard works by African American composers from Arkansas, including Scott Joplin’s rags, Florence Price’s keyboard pieces, and William Grant Still’s quartet. More than a stoic performer on a distant stage, this evening performance promises to bring the energy of audience, musician, and place together in perfect harmony.
Free, no tickets required.
About Trillium Salon Series
Trillium Salon Series redefines the live music experience to invite connection and build community. Founded in 2016 by Katy Henriksen and Glenn France, Trillium Salon Series began with the idea of producing house concerts for classical music and expanded to include experimental and avant-garde sounds. The first took place in Katy’s living room with string players from Artosphere Festival Orchestra playing Mozart alongside Lady Gaga to equal verve. Past salons include a celebration of Florence Price chamber music at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, a night of 21st century classical music at 21c Museum Hotel Bentonville, a live improv scoring to F.W. Murnau’s silent film classic Nosferatu with Thought Form Collective, a community-led installation of 1,000 origami cranes at Likewise Community in downtown Fayetteville, and a New Year’s Day Potluck celebration at Mount Sequoyah Center.
