Free Lecture: Crystal Bridges Museum

May 10, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

Building Crystal Bridges: Art, Architecture, Nature

Crystal Bridges Museum in Bentonville Arkansas has most definitely evolved. What started as a conversation and a sketch on a napkin ended with the genius architecture of Moshe Safdie and a highly respected cultural institution. Founded by Alice Walton, daughter of Wal-Mart founder Sam Walton, the museum is an iconic example of American Art and Architecture.

Curator Dylan Turk is our guest speaker. His ongoing work at Crystal Bridges focuses on the museum’s collection and presentation with emphasis on architecture projects like the reconstruction of Frank Lloyd Wrights’ Bachman-Wilson House. The house was taken apart and moved from its original location in New Jersey to Crystal Bridges Museum.

Our lectures are well attended, so please arrive early. Doors open at 6:00 p.m.
