The Mosaic Templars Cultural Center, a museum of the Department of Arkansas Heritage, is Arkansas's state-funded museum dedicated to the story of African American life and business in Arkansas.

Located at West Ninth and Broadway Streets in Little Rock, the Cultural Center offers educational programs, exhibits, genealogy research files, hundreds of artifacts and includes the art if Isaac Scott Hathaway. The Hathaway Collection is believed to be the largest of its kind.

Isaac Scott Hathaway, an African American artist, studied at the New England Conservatory of Music and later established the ceramic department at Branch Normal College in Pine Bluff (UAPB), and Tuskegee Institute in Tuskegee, Alabama. Most notably, Hathaway was the first African American artist commissioned to design a circulating coin for the United States Mint. He created the Booker T. Washington half dollar in 1946 and the Booker T. Washington/George Washington Carver half dollar in 1951.
