Full Description
Founded by philanthropist Alice Walton and opened to the public in 2011, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art welcomes all to celebrate the American spirit in a setting that unites the power of art with the beauty of landscape.

Including breath-taking views and vistas of the grounds and architecture, and intimate experiences with the artwork, this update to the 2013 edition includes new photography and content. Exquisite depictions of Moshe Safdie’s striking and graceful architecture, nestled in a creek bed fed by a natural spring, display perfectly the connections between art and landscape.

Highlights from the Colonial to Contemporary periods of American art include Charles Wilson Peale’s George Washington, Asher B. Durand’s Kindred Spirits, John Singer Sargent’s Capri Girl on a Rooftop and Nick Cave’s Sound Suit, each accompanied by accessibly written interpretations by the museum’s curators.
