AETN's 'Clean Lines, Open Spaces' wins three Emmys

CONWAY, Ark. (AETN) — “Clean Lines, Open Spaces: A View of Mid-Century Modern Architecture,” a production of the Arkansas Educational Television Network (AETN), received three Emmys in the 2012 annual awards competition of the Mid-America Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS).

“There is no greater sense of satisfaction than being recognized by one’s talented peers in this industry, especially those who vote in the regional Emmy Awards competition,” AETN Director of Production Carole Adornetto said.

“Clean Lines, Open Spaces,” a documentary by AETN Senior Producer Mark Wilcken, explores mid-century modern architecture through a regional lens of the American south. The film details how international influences helped shape the built environment of Arkansas after World War II.

The one-hour film was recognized with an award for Best Cultural Documentary, and Wilcken received individual awards for Best Writing and Best Editing.

AETN Public Media Center to open in new Museum of Discovery Saturday

 

CONWAY, Ark. (AETN) — The Arkansas Educational Television Network (AETN) has partnered with the all new Museum of Discovery in Little Rock to open the AETN Public Media Center, an interactive resource room highlighting the best in public broadcasting with a science and nature focus. The museum’s official reopening is Saturday, Jan. 14.

“The AETN Public Media Center at the Museum of Discovery is a wonderful partnership because we are both dedicated to providing educational opportunities to inspire visitors and viewers to explore the world around them,” AETN Executive Director Allen Weatherly said. “We are gratified that they approached us to create a resource area drawing on the quality, insightful programming for which AETN and PBS are known.”

Fire station to be built at Rahling Road, Taylor Loop

Groundbreaking for a new Little Rock fire station is scheduled to be in the next few months at the corner of Rahling Road and Taylor Loop.

A $2 million grant from FEMA will fund the building of the new station as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

The building was first announced in February by Mayor Mark Stodala and other city officials, as a way to keep the ISO rating in Ward 5 at a 2, which will help keep insurance rates from rising.

The project has just undergone an environmental review. Once it’s started, Little Rock spokeswoman Meg Matthews said it is scheduled to be finished within a year.
