Wildwood Park?s 104 bucolic acres are home to woodland trails, manicured gardens, and the 625-seat Lucy Lockett Cabe Festival Theater. In service of the center's continuing mission to encourage lifelong learning and fertile imaginations, the expansive grounds host myriad events that marry culture and art, from annual festivals to year-round children?s education programs. Beyond artistic pursuits, visitors can simply savor the center's natural splendor by taking in the sights of the Richard C. Butler Arboretum, wending through the Carl Hunger Wildflower Glenn, or spotting ballerinas in the wild at the park?s eight-acre swan lake. The nonprofit park maintains its gardens, education projects, and other artistic hallmarks purely through help from its community, including volunteers, individual donors, and arts organizations.

Combining professional players and proficient chefs, Murry's Dinner Playhouse has been a premier venue to witness edible dramatics for more than 40 years. Theater-going tongues can resolve hungry soliloquies in style with the buffet, which pairs proteins including chicken and freshly carved roast beef with an assortment of vegetable and dessert options. The dinner buffet also includes one nonalcoholic beverage. While dining, feast your eyes on Room Service, a classic American farce that brings the madcap energy of Golden Age Broadway to the halls and corridors of the White Way Hotel. During the show, audiences can root for the scheming protagonist while marveling at the immobile accuracy of the set's trained furniture impersonators.

"When you think of like New York, Milan, and L.A. and all these major cities there’s something that’s missing. It’s a freshness," Brandon D. Campbell told Arkansas Times in 2009, the year he debuted the first Little Rock Fashion Week. It's not that he has anything against the style of those towns—after all, as a TV writer and producer, he worked on red-carpet coverage for networks such as E! and MTV. But throughout his career, he retained a lingering fascination with the creativity bubbling just under the radar in his hometown. Today, burgeoning clothing designers, up-and-coming models, and local boutiques all shine in the spotlight during Little Rock Fashion Week, exciting audiences with new styles and, as importantly, making connections, both local and national. Models are sourced from the community in an open casting call and selected by a panel of local movers and shakers such as boutique owners, journalists, and strutting experts.

Nearly a century ago, the Hippodrome opened as a combination movie palace and vaudeville theater, spending more than 70 years hosting big names such as Bob Hope and Frank Sinatra. Following a double-decade period of slow business and bad hairstyles, the Hippodrome closed down in 1990. Now, however, after an exhaustive restoration project that reanimated the theater’s chandelier-lit arches, the mural above the proscenium stage, and the grand-theater boxes that hearken back to opera’s heyday, the Hippodrome reopens to the delight of Baltimore’s cultural landscape.

Toes tap, soles crisscross, and ankles point and flex as pairs of dancers whirl across Arthur Murray’s smooth floors, where Sacramento-area hoofers have practiced steps since 1947. A specialized curriculum imparts basics such as foot position and rhythm, as well as how to lead, follow, or trot across the ceiling during beginning classes, and eventually ushers students into bronze, silver, and competition-level gold classes. Graceful instructors certified through the World Professional Dance Teachers Association lead classes and events such as private lessons, group formation practices, core rhythms reviews, and weekly practice parties.
