Arkansas - Art of Arkansas

In this blog, we offer our #BestCommunityEver another look into our upcoming Arkansas map expansion for American Truck Simulator. This time, we want to show you some wonderful art of the Natural State you will encounter on your deliveries such as some beautiful murals and street art which are inspired by their real-world counterparts.

Fort Smith, the third most populous city in Arkansas, is home to many wall paintings. Truckers navigating our game will be able to encounter a mural of a Native American woman shooting from her bow there. Another notable artwork along US-64 features a comic book-style giant banana pointed at a horseback rider against a dark red background. And we could not leave out the paintings on the Fort Smith silos towering 100 feet into the sky. In the real world, they depict three local residents, whom we have transformed into our asset makers.

Magnolia, the county seat of Columbia County, offers plenty of colorful street art painted on the sides of buildings in the downtown area. These depict the different parts of the town's and county's history. If you find yourself in the northeast corner of Arkansas, visit Jonesboro which will feature its colorful lion painting in ATS. This one depicts three grey lion heads with a vibrant background.

Hot Springs, renowned for its thermal springs and spas, will also have a wall painting celebrating the first residents of the area, the Quapaw Tribe. This piece displays two Quapaw tribemen with a yellow background and can be found not far from the famous Arlington Hotel. Meanwhile, in the capital city of Arkansas, Little Rock, truckers can stumble upon a cute artwork of two foxes cuddling amidst a leafy setting.

When arriving into DeQueen, keep an eye out for their artistic welcome sign that is sure to make you feel right at home! And if you are passing through the US-64, you can come across a beautifully decorated wall right next to the road.

We believe you will appreciate this look into the art of Arkansas, which is still a work in progress. If you are excited about the Arkansas DLC, make sure to add it to your Steam Wishlist! Stay tuned for more updates on the development of the Natural State and other ATS-related news by following us on our TwitterFacebookInstagram, TikTok, and YouTube. Until then, we'll see you on the road.
