The Edwards Family Goes To An Art Museum

{ 0 comments }

Last weekend my parents came to stay with us for the weekend. On Saturday, the weather was beautiful so we made the 30 minute trip north to Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville.

Crystal Bridges opened in November (11-11-11 to be exact) and has gotten a lot of national press, but this was our first trip.

Aside from the fact that I got scolded from being less than 18 inches away from a painting within two minutes of entering the first gallery (but that’s a story for another day) we had a lovely trip.

This piece was an entire wall of spools of thread.

When you looked at it upside down it depicted The Last Supper

Overall, I was really impressed with Crystal Bridges. If you’re ever in the Northwest Arkansas area I would definitely recommend you make a visit.
