|On Saturday, we made our way up to Bentonville, Arkansas, to see |
the Crystal Bridges Art Museum. This is the sign
on the way in.
|The entrance to the museum with a great silver tree sculpture|
|This building is wonderful...I have never seen anything quite like it. |
The units are grouped over the lake, with lots of glass
walls that let the light in.
|One of my favorite paintings in the museum...it looked like a lot of |
the landscape right outside.
|Another one of my favorite paintings...I love how the |
wave looks transparent..wow
|Outside the building...part of the extensive gardens and a great metal sculpture. |
We didn't go outside...it was cold and raining!
This is a magnificent complex...all dedicated to American art. It was the vision of
the daughter of Sam Walton (of Walmart). It has been open only a year. The crowds
were large that day...lots of families, large groups, and art enthusiasts of all kinds.
There is a large cafe and dining area, and also an auditorium for presentations.
They do some art educational activities for children. There is just a lot going on here!
And it is definitely worth seeing....so plan a trip to Bentonville, Arkansas (of all places),
and enjoy a great time, communing with art and nature.
