If you have not been out to the House of Art in North Little Rock, Arkansas you are truly missing out. The artwork in there is magnificent. It is an African-American based art center. Yes it is small but Chris James, who is the owner, is still moving up more and more each day. Every Friday night they do poetry slams. I believe it’s an open mic in a way so you would also be able to join in if you wanted to. The only cost is $10 which is very cheap. They’re always at 8:30 PM. So, if you do decide to go, it is located in the North Little Rock Argenta District.
