UAPB art professor’s work to be displayed in Little Rock park


LITTLE ROCK — University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff art professor Danny Campbell was selected as one of six artists that will have their work selected as part of The Sculpture Project at Bernice Garden.

According to Bernice Garden founder Anita Davis, the selections were made from a field of 22 entries. Davis couldn’t be more pleased to have such a great group from which to choose.

“We had artists from all over the state, but we only selected six,” said Davis.

Danny Campbell’s artwork titled, “The Garden Series” will be one of the six sculptures placed in the sculptural park in downtown Little Rock.

“I am very excited and pleased to know my work was selected for such a beautiful green space,” said Campbell. “I look forward to sharing my vision and gift with all Arkansans. The work will be a reflection of nature, history and the spirit of Arkansas.”

The other artists selected are David Carpenter, Stephen Driver, Mia Hall/David Clemons, Kerrick and John Van Horn/Erika Drake.

Visitors will have a chance to meet Campbell and the other artists at the fifth annual Sculpture Party and Fall Fest on Sept. 19.
