I am curious as to why the Arkansas Arts Center in Little Rock displays only one photograph of Mike Meyer Disfarmer's photographs. They were given the 3,000 plus glass negatives of his photographs, so why do they not print them and proudly display at least some of them? His work is an important part of Arkansas' artistic history; it is as if AAC is ashamed of Mike Disfarmer's work.
