About Chihuly

Born in 1941 in Tacoma, Washington, Chihuly has been an innovator for more than 40 years. He has worked in many media including glass, paint, plastics, neon, and ice, always pushing their boundaries to carry out his distinctive vision. He changed the way we think about glass, stretching the medium to new realms of possibility, and this exhibition highlights the unique properties of glass as a medium.

Chihuly sees glass as an art form of fire, breath, light, and gravity. 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.

Guided Snorkeling Excursion @ Rocky Branch Marina
Jul 17 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Do you have a Schnorchel? We have them at Hobbs State Park

How well do you know your German navy slang? First recorded in 1940-1945, the name of the airshaft for German U-boats came from the German navy slang Schnorchel for “nose, or snout,”. Today when we go swimming and use one, we call it a snorkel.

Snorkeling is incredibly fun, relaxing, and a wonderful way to explore the world beneath the waves. You can just drift through the water, relax, and enjoy a previously unexplored, wet wonderland.

Snorkeling is the practice of swimming on or through a body of water while equipped with a diving mask, a shaped tube called a snorkel, and usually fins. Use of this equipment allows the snorkeler to observe underwater attractions for extended periods of time with relatively little effort. The primary appeal is the opportunity to observe underwater life in a natural setting without the complicated equipment and training required for scuba diving. Snorkeling appeals to all ages because of how little effort is involved.

Join your Hobbs State Park interpreter guide to truly appreciate Beaver Lake as few have. We will take a short pontoon boat ride to an unspoiled, quiet cove, searching for the hidden diversity of underwater life.

When:
Monday, July 17th from 1-4pm
Tuesday, July 25th from 1-4pm
Friday, July 28th from 1-4pm
Friday, August 4th from 1-4pm
Thursday, August 10th 1-4pm
Friday, August 25th 1-4pm
Thursday, August 31st 1-4pm

Wear appropriate clothing for swimming, including water shoes, and sunscreen. Participants must wear a life jacket. All participants under 18 must be accompanied by an adult, and the adult must be in the water. Life jackets, masks, and snorkels provided.

Where: All participants meet at Rock Branch Marina, 8872 Rocky Branch Marina Road, Rogers, Arkansas 72756 (Hwy. 12 to 303 north, to Rocky Branch Marina Road)

Cost: $20 Adults (13 and up) and $10 Child (Up thru age 12)
Preregistration and payment required. To register call: 479-789-5000.

All About Cheese Cooking Class @ Honeycomb Kitchen Shop

Two of our favorites are back in the HKS kitchen heading up a class that is all about cheese! Join us along with Chef Brent Hale of Big Sexy Food and Jessica Keahey of Sweet Freedom Creamery to learn not only how to make different kinds of cheeses, but then how to utilize them in exciting recipes. It’s going to be double the fun!

Cheese-making is part-art, part-science but Jessica will break down the mystery of Little Miss Muffet’s curds and whey. She will be demonstrating how easy it is to make butter, ricotta, and mozzarella in this interactive class, as well as share tips, recipes, and resources to help you get started making simple cheeses in your own kitchen. Brent will then follow with some delicious savory recipes like pork belly, spring rolls, and beer bread that will all feature the cheeses you learned about. Tickets are $60 per person.
