American Art Presentation: Crystal Bridges Museum

October 14, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

$10.00 - $15.00

A fabulous opportunity to learn about the largest and most extensive museum of American art in the country.

The Crystal Bridges Museum, located just a day’s drive away in northwest Arkansas, was founded by Alice Walton (daughter of Walmart founder Sam Walton) and houses some America’s most famous paintings. In this presentation you’ll gain insights into Walton’s collecting strategy and hear from noted art historian and professor Gayle Seymour, who will present a slide lecture with highlights from the esteemed museum’s permanent collection—some of the most recognized pieces in American history.

There will be a reception with cash bar following the event.

The museum is a fabulous weekend experience just a day’s drive (or easy plane flight) away. Come learn about it at the White House, then plan your trip! Click here to view the museum’s web site.
