Join us as we share and celebrate the traditions of Marshallese culture in Northwest Arkansas!
We invite you to gather among artisans and elders from the Marshallese community as we host the opening ceremony for the Wa Kuk Wa Jimor/Canoe of One Community project. For four weeks, master boat-builder Liton Beasa and his team of youth apprentices will be on-site at Crystal Bridges constructing a kōrkōr, a traditional Marshallese wooden outrigger canoe.
This opening ceremony marks the beginning of the project, and celebrates Marshallese culture with dance, music, presentations by community leaders, Marshallese food vendors, and more. After the ceremony, we invite you to stick around and explore the free artmaking fun of Art Trail at Night!
