The museum has hosted the “Say it Ain’t Say’s” contest since 2012, in honor of Little Rock native and community activist Robert “Say” McIntosh. Say devoted his life to political activism, and along with his wife, Derotha, ran the Say McIntosh Restaurant and Pie Factory, which earned him the title of the “Sweet Potato Pie King of Little Rock.” Say passed away in June of 2023, and the celebration is now held in his memory.
Those attending the event will also get a sneak peek of a new exhibit located inside the museum’s transitional gallery, featuring a curated selection of works from the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center’s Artist of the Year 2023, Mr. Rex Deloney. The exhibit will open to the public the following day.
