Welcome to Arkansas State University!

ASU Museum family mourns passing of Retired Director, Dr. Charlott Jones

Dr. Jones began the Through A Child's Eyes art exhibition that we will celebrate at ASU Museum in just a few days.

“On April 8 we will dedicate the TACE awards ceremony to Dr. Charlott Jones in celebration of her life,” stated Dr. Marti L. Allen, current director of ASU Museum. “It seems a wondrous concurrence that we finished hanging TACE 2018 just the day before she passed. For the next month—and indeed every April hence—as we gaze upon works of art by children in our region, we’ll be seeing the fruits of one of Charlott’s most memorable accomplishments through the eyes of those children. Charlott and her dear legacy will be all over the walls of ASU Museum!”
