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.
