The Arts & Science Center for Southeast Arkansas Endowment Fund is the foundation upon which The Arts & Science operates. When a gift is made to the Endowment it increases the principal investment thereby growing the fund for the future. Each year, a small percentage of the Endowment helps The Arts & Science Center to fulfill its mission: Serving as a cultural crossroad—engaging, educating, and entertaining through the arts and sciences.
Contributions can be made to the Endowment in any amount and gifts of $25 or more include a free card featuring artwork from The Arts & Science Center’s Permanent Collection. Honorariums and Memorials are two popular ways to give gifts while also helping The Arts & Science Center to fulfill its mission of service to the region. A card is sent to the person or family recognizing your honorarium or memorial.
Named Endowments begin at the $25,000 contribution level. Over the years, Named Endowments have helped to fund the high caliber programming that The Arts & Science Center provides for the community. Named Endowments may also be specified in support of a focus area: Visual Arts, Science, Performing Arts, and Education are popular.
Honorariums are a great way to send greetings for birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, and thank yous—or any special occasion. These gifts give at least three times:
Memorials are an elegant recognition of caring and also help others for years to come. Gifts of $25 or more include a free card featuring artwork from The Arts & Science Center’s Permanent Collection. This beautiful card will be sent directly to the family acknowledging your gift.

The 1,455 artworks focus on contemporary Arkansas artists, artists of the Delta, and African American artists. ASC is the only museum within the state that specifically focuses on the aforementioned areas.
ASC hosts approximately 10-12 exhibitions a year in three galleries in its main building; with the addition of The ARTSpace on Main, ASC now offers even more opportunities for showcasing art.
The Arts & Science Center offers diversity in access as the exhibitions are viewable not only in person, but through virtual exhibitions on ASC’s website. ASC also offers traveling exhibitions to organizations, including Heritage Detectives and the Women of the Arkansas Delta photography exhibition.
Our exhibitions aim to engage the audience through diversity of artist, medium and subject matter. We create direct connections between our exhibitions and community outreach events and programs such as:
ASC’s gallery admission is always free, and the majority of exhibition programming and events are also free.
Exhibition funds allow local artists to engage in their greater community, while also aiding ASC in the care of the Permanent Collection.
ASC now offers two ways for patrons and organizations to directly support ASC’s exhibitions and collections: The Exhibition Support Fund and Individual Exhibition Sponsorships.Help move the arts forward with a donation to support ASC’s exhibitions and collections.
