ArcadeNow is a series showcasing innovative music, dance, film, and visual art that thrives outside of traditional presentation spaces. Hosted on the ground floor of the historic Propak building in Fort Smith Arkansas, these performances will immerse the regional community in a dialogue about the importance of the space in which art is experienced. This series will provide a platform for sustained community engagement, ongoing artist elevation, and continued revitalization of existing historic spaces.
