FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The Jim and Joyce Faulkner Performing Arts Center at the University of Arkansas will host Reclamations from Friday, Nov. 15 until Friday, Jan. 17.

Featured artists include Roy Boney (Cherokee), Bobby Martin (Muskogee - Creek), Lauren Reed (Choctaw - Cherokee), Erin Shaw (Chickasaw - Choctaw) and Kindra Swafford (Cherokee). The exhibit also includes José "Pepo" Toledo (Guatemala).
An opening reception for Reclamations will be held at 6 p.m. Friday, Nov. 15, in the Faulkner Center lobbies. Light refreshments will be provided.
The exhibit is free and open to the public. Reclamations will be on display in the Faulkner Center lobbies. Lobbies are open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and during special evening events.
