The Walton Arts Center is the cultural epicenter of Northwest Arkansas. It is named after the Walton family which has a metric assload of money from the Wal-Mart corporation that Sam Walton started. They throw this money in great volumes at anything that moves. E.g. the University of Arkansas School of Business, which is now the Helen Walton School of Business. Note also Bud Walton Arena, the home of the Razorbacks.

A while back Sam Walton's daughter was pulled over on suspicion of DWI. She insulted the officer by becoming indignant and asking repeatedly, "Don't you know who I am?" They hauled her in anyway, rich as she was.
