"A Launch Pad to Success: Planning, Programming, Pre-Construction for the Arkansas Arts Center Renovation & Expansion

Complex museum expansions require a heightened focus on early strategic thinking; a willingness to re-imagine core programs, a willingness to re-think operations and the strength to renew an institutional identity. The Arkansas Arts Center is undergoing a major expansion of its fine arts museum, art school and theater designed by Studio Gang. The project encompasses a renovation of all major programs, significant structural rebuild, historic façade restoration, revitalized landscaping, event spaces, galleries and storage vaults.

Together with museum leadership, the designers and builders can define the future and bring those aspirations to life. This session will explore the planning, programming, and pre-construction phases of the ongoing transformation of the Arkansas Arts Center (AAC) in Little Rock."
