Museum Awarded NEH Grant to refine plans for Rockabilly Exhibition

Arkansas State University Museum is delighted to announce the receipt of a grant in the amount of $39,983 from the National Endowment of the Humanities (NEH, Planning Grant Category).

The NEH grant will enable ASU Museum to develop conceptual plans and project costs for a long-term exhibit on Rockabilly. As part of the project, the Museum will also explore ways to facilitate the increasing number of tourists who are looking for "routes to roots music" in the region.

Look here to read more about the Grant and the Rockabilly project!

Museum Logo

The Museum serves the academic mission of the University as a teaching museum and provides quality programming that broadens the perceptions of people in Northeast Arkansas and the Mississippi River Delta region, connects people with their history, promotes tolerance, engages minds in progressive thinking, and enhances the sense of community among all audiences.

Quality exhibits that broaden perceptions

We offer exhibits (permanent, online, and temporary) connected to Core Curriculum, audio podcasts, tours (self-guided and guided), and traveling suitcases. From learning about your family history to completing art projects and treasure hunts, there is something for everyone at the ASU Museum. 

Thanks to a grant in the amount of $90,013 from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS, Museums for America "Learning Experiences" category), ASU Museum is able to continue its membership in the Arkansas Discovery Network through 2017. This network is a coalition of six museums in Arkansas that develops and shares children's exhibits and programs, thanks to cash support from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation.

The IMLS grant enables the Museum to offer engaging, STEM-supportive learning experiences for children and families and fund part-time assistants to help deliver programs. Network membership benefits include specialized training for education staff and monetary assistance to schools for field trips.
