The Lennis Broadfoot Exhibit is currently being featured at the Ozark National Scenic Riverways’ Van Buren Visitor Center now through December 2008. Mr. Broadfoot, a native of Shannon County and a self-taught artist, expressed a passion for the Ozarks and its people through his beautiful art. Although his sketches were inspired from travels throughout the United States, Broadfoot’s roots were planted firmly in the Ozarks. His main goal was to preserve an accurate record of the pioneers of the hills, their unique customs of living, and a life that was very different from anything known to modern people. The Broadfoot Exhibit also features the outstanding art of the Van Buren 4th grade class. The students studied the life of Lennis Broadfoot, his art and his love for the Ozarks. After gaining an understanding of his enthusiasm for the people and culture of Ozarks, they began thinking about a person that has made an impression upon them. The students then created charcoal sketches, as Mr. Broadfoot did, to bring their images to life. The result of their hard work and talent is displayed alongside Broadfoot’s pieces.
