BOB AND BECKY ALEXANDER (2014 Arts Advocate Award) are Northwest Arkansas natives — Becky a graduate of Bentonville High School, and Bob of Fayetteville High.  After completing degrees at the University of Arkansas in 1977, they moved to Dallas, where their hobby of buying and selling arts and antiques gradually become a full-time business. In 1987 they returned to Northwest Arkansas and became involved in the region’s arts community.  Over the past years, Bob has served on the boards of Historic Arkansas Museum in Little Rock, American Folk Art Museum in New York City, Walton Arts Center, and The Northwest Arkansas Razorback Club.  Becky has served on the Peel Museum and Bentonville Garden Club boards and both are currently serving on the Campaign Arkansas committee at the University of Arkansas. Their support of the arts include the Walton Arts Center, TheatreSquared, The AMP, SoNA, Historic Arkansas Museum, American Folk Art Museum, Crystal Bridges, the Rogers Historic Museum, and the Compton-Peel Foundation. When not at an event concerning the performing and visual arts, you will find them watching the Razorbacks. The 2014 Arts Advocate Award recognizes their contributions to the arts and to the greater Northwest Arkansas community through leadership, inspiration, and hard work.
