Crystal Bridges

Yesterday I wrote a bit about the first part of a little family trip to Arkansas. After spending the day in Eureka Springs, we drove to Bentonville to spend the night (I will forever be an Air B&B fan after this trip!). The next day, we went to the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. As it turns out, my stepdad is kind of a big art buff, and even used to be an artist himself in his younger years (maybe I can get him to give me lessons!). I was a little blown away by how wonderful it was--there were a handful of pieces that I could have literally spent all day staring at. I even came face to face with a painting by my all-time favorite artist, Andrew Wyeth. It was an amazing stop, and if you're ever in the Bentonville area, it is definitely worth a visit! Here's a sampling of our day.

  1. I love wandering around art museums. This is one place I wish I hadn't missed before moving. Hopefully I'll get another chance when I visit.

  2. These are great photos of your time there! Crystal bridges is one of my favorite places to be and I've only been once. Casey Bovee and I had talked at one point about taking a girls trip there someday. Perhaps it could be at the same time as The Little Craft Show which is also in Arkansas.
