The Unexpected Project: Festival of Murals is not just affecting Fort Smith- it is affecting UAFS as well. The Unexpected Project is the result of John McIntosh’s vision to see downtown Fort Smith revitalized and returned to the days when it was the heart and soul of the city. In order to see his vision come to fruition, McIntosh had to involve many people and organizations. A team was developed and that team developed committees that, among other things, chose the buildings that would make the best canvases. Don Lee, department head of the art program at UAFS, is one of those team members.
