If you’ve been looking for a way to become more of an “art person,” or just a more cultured human, the Momentary is always refilling its space with new, free, modern art exhibits.
Fashion as cultural art: The Momentary will host an original group exhibition called “In Some Form or Fashion” Nov. 20, 2021 - Mar. 13, 2022. The visual arts exhibition will hold the work of 6 different artists exploring “the cultural implications of fashion,” and how garments shape identity.
Preparing for more: The ORT will restructure its board before any further steps are taken for the new development plan. However, the plan is projected to “improve and expand transit in Northwest Arkansas” as ridership levels increase due to local events like football games and cycling races.
Bentonville-based and woman-founded technology firm Stonehenge Technology Labs raised $2m in seed funding for its artificially intelligent commerce software.
AI business tech: Stonehenge Technology Lab’s software program is for Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) companies and is called "Stopwatch." Six new investors, C-Suite executives in CPG as well as retail technology, put money toward Stopwatch.
Right in the middle: Professionals experienced working for jet.com, Walmart, and Amazon are a part of the Stopwatch’s data engineering, digital retail and artificial intelligence team. The location of Stonehenge Technology Labs in NWA was intentional, so as to be close with its users to “deliver exactly what they need.”
Categories: The event is divided into 6 age-group categories, giving anyone aged 7+ a chance to be a world cycling champion. It is $20 to compete, and registration closes at 12p Friday, Sept. 3.
