The ArtsVickie Newton, Chairperson
The Links support of the arts can be traced to our cultured co-founder Margaret Roselle Hawkins. Her innate artistic talent, discovered at a young age, earned her a four-year scholarship to the Women's School of Design, later known as the Moore Institute of Art. Her passion for creative expression later led to her appointment as an art teacher, and helped give root to the establishment of the The Arts facet in 1964 at the 14th National Assembly.
The GOAL of the Arts facet is to increase and expand art activity, and elevate our programs through arts integrations and effectively create an arts renaissance within our organization and programmatic efforts.
The Little Rock Chapter, The Links, Incorporated funds over 75 students to attend live plays at the Arkansas Reperatory Theatre. In addition to premium seating, a private reception is held and the students are able to meet and chat with cast members and the stage crew after the performance. The most recent plays attended were "Elf", "Because of Winn-Dixie" and "To Kill a Mockingbird",
