The Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts is making capital improvements to better position itself as a beacon for arts education and cultural development in Little Rock, Arkansas, and neighboring states. Anser is supporting the museum throughout all phases of their capital improvement program. Studio Gang’s design creates vibrant spaces for interaction; improves wayfinding for visitors, reconnects The Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts more dynamically to the park; creates more fluid connections between key programs – its collections, the Museum School and its Children’s Theater; reduces operational inefficiencies; and replaces critically outdated maintenance systems. The project creates 127,000 SF of new and renovated spaces for the facility. Anser helps the museum make strategic decisions that preserve timeline and budget for its renovation and expansion, while remaining true to its vision.
