John Rankine has done so much to promote the arts in our town, and promote community through his Community at Peace project, that he was honored this week with an Arkansas Arts Council fellowship.

A prolific artist in multiple media, John has documented an era of Eureka Springs' history for the Citizen and future generations. Currently he's working with the Artists in Situ group to promote the work of local artists and bring more recognition to Eureka Springs as an arts and cultural center.

Commitment to beautifying a small Ozarks town and proactively encouraging its other beautifiers is why John is a citizen of our times.
