The Delta Cultural Center's newest exhibit will be the first in a series of exhibits with a Civil War focus. “Civil War Arkansas, 1861-1865” will be on display at the DCC Visitors Center from Dec. 18 through Jan. 31. It offers a chronological history of the Civil War in Arkansas using photographs and text on a traveling exhibit. One side of the 8' x 12' display features historic photographs and artists' prints of battle scenes, while the flip side highlights not only war events, but also postwar changes during Emancipation, Reconstruction, and after. “This exhibit will be a great introduction to Helena's sesquicentennial commemoration of the Civil War and the Battle of Helena,” said DCC Director Katie Harrington. The exhibit is a collaborative effort of three different entities. The Arkansas Civil War Sesquicentennial Commission located the images and created the text, the Old State House Museum staff designed and built it, and scheduling and the Arkansas Humanities Council has handled distribution of the exhibit. Gallery hours at the DCC Visitors Center at 141 Cherry Street and the nearby DCC Depot at 95 Missouri Street are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesdays through Saturday. Admission is free.
