Here’s a look at what’s going on in Northwest Arkansas sponsored by the Snapple Lemonade variety pack.
The Momentary in Bentonville always has the best art exhibits and they have a new exhibit for you to check out on your next visit. Kenny Rivero’s “The Ground Is Twisted” is a solo exhibition that explores the painter’s artistic practice and the themes that have been present in his work over the past decade – themes of American identity, cultural expectations, race and masculinity. You can watch “The Floor is Crooked” for free until October 24th.
Pinpoint, the Fayetteville Pinball Bar, is finally able to bring home a fan favorite event… their Pinball tournament. Traditionally, this event takes place on the last Tuesday of the month – they had to take a break due to the pandemic, but it’s officially back.

The tournament has two installments, Amateur and Pro and organizers say they want to make sure everyone is having fun. This event will start on Tuesday June 29 at 7:00 p.m.
