Springtime in Northwest Arkansas means the place to enjoy the blooms is at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. With over five miles of walking and biking trails across 120 acres of natural Ozark forest, visitors can see redbuds, dogwoods, and more beautiful flowers during bloom season. Enjoy art in the galleries and around the grounds, and check out the museum’s current temporary exhibition, Crafting America, and upcoming programs!
Don’t Miss Crafting America
Crafting America, a new exhibition developed by Crystal Bridges, celebrates the skill and individuality of craft within the broad context of American art. Featuring over 100 works in ceramics, fiber, wood, metal, glass, and more unexpected materials, Crafting America presents a diverse and inclusive story of American craft from the 1940s to today, highlighting the work of artists such as Ruth Asawa, Beatrice Wood, Shan Goshorn, Nick Cave, and more.
