MENA – A Mena native is returning home to display her unique art on the campus of UA Rich Mountain beginning January 20. Ms. Roberta (Bell) Ehrlich is the daughter of Mr. R.B. Bell who first built the KENA radio station and spent much of her childhood in Mena. She would later go on to graduate from Poteau High School before moving to New York City where her talent would birth an art company, Third Eye Inc.
Roberta candidly shared that they originally borrowed $600 from friends in order to produce 200 ‘posters’ of her graphics that she would sell $10 each and the rest, as they say, is history. Her temporary art exhibit includes original designs by Robert but also include Marvel comic heroes.
