Todd Herman, Director of the Arkansas Arts Center discusses the Kenwood House exhibit, featuring works from Rembrandt, Van Dycke, Gainsborough and other masters. Herman tells how the exhibit came to Little Rock, one of only four U.S. cities to host it (Houston, Seattle, Milwaukee were the others) . He answers those pressing questions 'Why?' and 'How?' this impressive exhibit could possibly reach this small city. The exhibit closes September 28th.
