Arkansas Tourism traveling photo exhibit receives award from AAA Southern Traveler

Arkansas Tourism’s first traveling photo exhibit has been recognized by the AAA Southern Traveler as an official Southern Travel Treasure.
“Arkansas’s Scenic Tourism Landscapes” debuted at the Ritz Theater in Blytheville in November and will be on display until February 15. It will then move to the Fort Smith Convention Center on March 1 and will coincide with the annual Arkansas Governor’s Conference on Tourism. Admission to view the exhibit is free.

“For decades, photographers with [Arkansas Tourism] have been capturing amazing sights across the state,” said AAA Southern Traveler. “From lofty mountains to deep caverns, and rugged trails to roaring rivers, Arkansas is brimming with natural wonders, and now Arkansas Tourism is presenting a photographic look at why The Natural State’s nickname is so apropos.”
Featuring the work of Arkansas Tourism photographers past and present, the exhibit is an accumulation of decades of work showcasing The Natural State.
