Aristotle Completes Microsite for Old State House Museum
Apr. 04, 2007
Aristotle and the Arkansas Old State House Museum announce the launch of the museum's new microsite, Trying to Get Home: Black Folk Art as History. The new site, http://www.oldstatehouse.com/leenora_parlor
, features over 50 paintings and accompanying musings by Arkansas black folk artist LeeNora Parlor.
For those who cannot actually step foot inside the Old State House Museum, the exhibit presents a unique online representation and layout of Parlor's creations. The online exhibit includes additional works not on display in the museum as well as a slideshow presenting paintings that are available for purchase.
Parlor's art primarily portrays folksy images of the natural environment and of her past including her African American family and their daily lives in the rural South.
