About Chihuly

Born in 1941 in Tacoma, Washington, Chihuly has been an innovator for more than 40 years.

He is globally renowned for his ambitious site-specific installations in public spaces, as well as exhibitions presented in museums and gardens. At Crystal Bridges, the extensive indoor and outdoor installations feature new works by the artist, as well as iconic works spanning the breadth of his career.

Chihuly established the glass program at the Rhode Island School of Design and co-founded Pilchuck Glass School in Washington. His artworks are included in more than 250 museum collections.

Downtown Rogers Farmers Market @ Downtown Rogers

Every Saturday May 6 – October 28, 2017 | 8am to 1pm | Vendor List

The City of Rogers purchased an auto repair shop in 2015 on Cherry Street, and has renovated the space to be home to the new Downtown Rogers Farmers Market, managed by Main Street Rogers. The market opened April 30th of 2016, the market opened with over 40 vendors in drive-up bays. The indoor-outdoor facility is very unique and vendor friendly, and is expected to attract some of the best vendors from Northwest Arkansas to sell their goods.

The new market will not only be a place for farmers to have a permanent home to sell their goods, but also a gathering place for the community with space for food trucks and access to the Razorback Greenway trails which goes through the market itself and continues down to the new Railyard Bike Park.  Families will now be able to ride their bikes to the market together, shop the market, dine together, and enjoy the activities of a revitalizing and growing Downtown Rogers district.
