doze green renews abandoned art nouveau theater in arkansas with existential life

artist doze green interpreted his version of life all over the walls of the sparks new theater in fort smith, arkansas. the ‘new’ theatre is over a century old, but thanks to doze green, it’s breathing some new, theatrical life. the opening of the space kicked off fort smith’s downtown art program, ‘UNEXPECTED’ — a project that brings urban and contemporary art to arkansas through immersive public art experiences.

‘the divine spark project’ by doze green, curated by creative house justkids, includes a myriad of media. visitors may experience the progression of art’s many manifestations, through music, dance, theater, visual and spoken word encompassed via murals, neon lights, video projections, 3D animations, and quartet orchestras.
