Not the U of A Fine Arts Center
  • Not the U of A Fine Arts Center

A post on the U of A's history listserv makes an apt observation about the Razorbacks' plan to issue bonds to build a "football center."

Regarding historic preservation, I noted that Edward Durell Stone's son Hicks Stone, in his address on his father's work and life to a full house in his father's Fine Arts Center at the University of Arkansas Fayetteville, lamented that the landmark building is deteriorating and in serious need of restoration. Today Jeff Long announced UA Board approval of a 25 million dollar bond program to boost football facilities.

The Football Center is, in total, a $35 million project.
