Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art

I had the awesome pleasure of visiting Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art this summer.  This Museum is located in Bentonville, Arkansas in the northwest part of the state.  The collection spans five centuries of American Art!
If you haven't been here yet, you must go!!!
As the sign says "YOU BELONG HERE."
The architecture of the building is amazing, designed by Moshe Safdie, and filled with layers and textures and yumminess, oh, my!
The inside and outside are filled with such wonderful finds, 
you won't believe that they are in the middle of the nation!  

Artful patios, walking trails, sprawling lawns, and beautiful gardens surround the building, making for an all-encompassing art experience!

You will also find a gathering space, an amazing restaurant, named Eleven, perfect for enjoying a full day of fun and a great view!

These are just two of my favorite art pieces in the recent exhibit.  Above, a Mary Cassatt piece, 1877, and below a piece by Will Barnet, 1965, showing one of my beloved pastimes!
