Featured in the program is Hendrix College Assistant Professor of Art Maxine Payne, an artist and photographer who photographed and chronicled historic bridges in the state for the Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department over a three year period. Payne has been responsible for not only capturing the bridges' unique qualities visually, but also for exploring the connections to the lives of Arkansans.
