The Galleries at Library Square

The Galleries at Library Square highlight art by Arkansas creators and showcase exhibitions that promote Arkansas history and culture. The Galleries are located on the first floor of Bobby L. Roberts Library of Arkansas History & Art. There are four exhibition galleries that host rotating exhibitions, including works from the Central Arkansas Library System (CALS) permanent collection. There is also a retail gallery that offers work by Arkansas artists.

In addition to these galleries, several library locations throughout the CALS system host various exhibitions throughout the year.

The Roberts Library research room and the Galleries at Library Square will be open on a limited basis Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9:00-11:00 a.m. and 1:00-5:00 p.m. The 9:00-11:00 a.m. time slot will be set aside exclusively for high-risk populations.

The exterior doors will remain locked. Patrons will be directed to go to the main entrance of the building at 401 President Clinton Avenue and contact the Gallery staff for admission by ringing the doorbell or by calling 320-5790. During these hours, both the galleries and the research room will take appointments and allow a very limited number of walk-up visitors.
