I had the pleasure of visiting the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, AR.
The museum featured many inspiring artists and sculptors as well as beautiful architecture and sights.
The Bachman-Wilson House is an example of Frank Lloyd Wright’s classic utopian architecture. The house was built in 1956 and was moved to Arkansas in 2015, broken apart into individual components and put all back together. Talk about a big move!
The museum featured a number of outdoor trail routes with breathtaking views. Each trail was transformed with different sculptures and architecture, along with beautiful nature attractions.
Along the creek showcased Buckminster Fuller’s Fly’s Eye Dome, a phenomenal sculpture featuring circular openings, a pattern similar to the eye lenses of a fly.
The Way of Color by James Turrell was located on the Art Trail, where I was able to experience various color changes at different times of the day.
Buckeyball by Leo Villareal shone through the dark skies as LED lights worked its magic on the aluminum sculpture. It was a great ending to an inspiration-filled day.
