UpStream Art, a public art and awareness project, is seeking artists to paint another round of murals on various storm drain covers throughout Northwest Arkansas.

You may notice that things are a little more colorful than normal around Fayetteville this winter, thanks to a new art installation by local photographer Michelle Marshall.

Our own Tobias Wray reviewed “Memphis the Musical” which runs through Feb. 10 at the Walton Arts Center. He called it “a jubilant romp into a dark, blues-filled period of American history.”

Speaking of the Walton Arts Center, we’re giving away a pair of tickets to see “Potted Potter” on Feb. 16. To enter, head over to our contest page and leave a comment with the name of your favorite character from the Harry Potter series.
