Upcoming events at Mosaic Templars museum

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- The Mosaic Templars Cultural Center of Little Rock is all about sharing Arkansas history through the arts.

The "Southern Journeys" exhibit, which runs through August 2011, is one way they're doing this. But according to Quantia Fletcher, director of education at the museum, there's more than one way to get into the act.

I caught up with "Key" at the museum earlier this week. Hear what she had to say about the Mosaic Templars' upcoming events.

PRICECREW ready for Big-Time

PRICECREW ready for Big-Time

PRICECREW is made up of four brothers from Jacksonville, Arkansas. Philip-24, Zachary-21, Jacob-15 and Caleb-14; Caleb was barely two years old at that first performance but he still knew the right way to move. The crew has been singing and dancing ever since. There is something special going on when four brothers from Arkansas can sing, dance and put on a show the way PRICECREW can.

Throughout the past few years the brothers have grown to understand it takes hard work and dedication to accomplish what their dreams hold. They have played countless venues and are always looking for ways to improve their act, as well as pushing themselves to make the best music they possibly can.

Over the years they have performed at the local festivals and venues, including Riverfest and Magic Springs' Summer Concert Series, gaining popularity throughout Central Arkansas.
