Since we mentioned an acquisition of the Arkansas Arts Center earlier, here's another announcement: The College of the Ouachitas in Malvern has added to its permanent collection Barbara Cade's "Arkansas' Fallen." Cade's work — leaves of handmade felt, linen and acrylic on handmade paper, records the names of all Arkansans who died in the Iraq war. The original had 45 inscribed leaves; the Arkansas war dead at the war's end December 2011, now totals 101. She is adding the last 10 names now; the ground is fairly carpeted.
