CRYSTAL BRIDGES

October 30, 2014

We’ve just returned from Crystal Bridges Museum of America Art in Bentonville, Arkansas where we saw the current exhibit “State of the Art: Discovering American Art Now.” It runs to January 19, 2015 and if you are anywhere near northwest Arkansas I urge to see it. Not only is it a fantastic display of current American art showing everything from fiber to film, but the admission is FREE! The following two pics are of the museum.

And being a fiber artist myself, I was particularly drawn to the fiber in the exhibit
