Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art
Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art is a museum in Bentonville, Arkansas, founded by Alice Walton.
Crystal Bridges takes its name from a nearby natural spring and the bridge construction incorporated in the building, designed by world-renowned architect Moshe Safdie, it opened on 11-11-11. Its campus contains a series of pavilions nestled around two spring-fed ponds that house galleries, meeting and classroom spaces, and a large, glass-enclosed gathering hall. Its permanent collection spans five centuries of American artworks from early American to the present.
On 02-22-2020, Crystal Bridges opened a satellite contemporary art space in downtown Bentonville called the Momentary at 507 SE E St. Formerly a decommissioned cheese factory, it is now a multidisciplinary space for visual arts, performing arts, culinary experiences, festivals, and artists-in-residence offering dynamic programs and experiences.
