Blytheville to Discuss Museum at Town Hall Meeting

BLYTHEVILLE, AR - Mayor Barry Harrison and the Blytheville Museum Commission will host a special "town hall meeting" at the Ritz Civic Center in downtown Blytheville Thursday evening, beginning at 5:30 p.m.

The purpose of the meeting is to solicit input from the community regarding the development and design of the Delta Gateway Museum, which will be located in the historic Kress building downtown.  Several students involved in the interior design program at the University of Arkansas will be at the meeting to gather input for the project.  The students will then review the information and then design suggestions for the development of the museum.

The mission of the museum is to "tell the story of Blytheville and the surrounding area by interpreting the land and its impact upon the people. 

More information is available by calling The Ritz at 762-1744.
