Downtown Little Rock Partnership

SoMa’s about to get a little brighter.

The Downtown Little Rock Partnership announced today that a design by Little Rock artist Kait Culbertson has been selected for an asphalt mural covering the intersection of South Main and 13th streets.

Culbertson — of Posse Paper Goods, a line of good-natured, frequently groovy illustration work — will lead the installation on June 15 and 16, but the DLRP is looking for volunteers to help with painting; managing onlookers; and washing the street, brushes and rollers. If interested, you can sign up for a three-hour shift here.

Funding for the project came from the Bloomberg Philanthropies Asphalt Art Initiative, and Culbertson’s florid and pastelly design was chosen from a pool of finalists that the public was asked to vote on in late April. Designs from the other finalists can be found below:

Help to Keep Great Journalism Alive in Arkansas

Arkansas Times needs to raise $25,000 to help fund our new agriculture and environment reporter, who comes to us with help from Report For America. Without a dedicated agriculture reporter, the stories of our state’s primary industry and its 243,000 workers remain untold. This isn’t just about news—it’s about recognizing the backbone of Arkansas’s economy. Every dollar you donate helps us reach our goal and keeps agriculture at the forefront of our community conversation. Act now; the stories of 19 million acres of forest and countless hardworking Arkansans depend on it.
