A Trip To Crystal Bridges

This past weekend my bride and I took a trip to Northwest Arkansas to celebrate her birthday. Along with the massages, shopping and sushi, we ventured to the somewhat new museum in Bentonville known as Crystal Bridges.

The architecture reminded me of the Sydney Opera House

Along with being free and having amazing architecture, the museum houses a fantastic permanent exhibit of American art ranging from the late 18th century all the way up to present day.

I love the "action" in this painting, although the guy in the back looks to be aiming at someone outside the frame.

There are also tons of trails to walk around on, along with a rotating exhibit or two, but time kept us from enjoying those. We are planning to make a trip in the fall to enjoy some of that a bit more. I highly recommend this place to anyone into art, architecture or just a cool thing to do that doesn’t cost anything. Yay free.
