Details

The Walton Arts Center is a performing arts center. It is located in Fayetteville, Arkansas near the campus of the University of Arkansas, and serves as a cultural center for the Northwest Arkansas area. The building was opened in 1992 in large part because of funds donated by the Walton family (of Walmart). The center is host to many musicals, plays, and other artistic and educational events throughout the year. Wikipedia
