WALMART MUSEUM

It looks world-class. Definitely looks worthwhile to make a trip when it opens 11-11-11

quote="Paul2CV"]Hi Forum,

Interesting article. This will become a major Arkansas tourist site. The link follows below the excerpt:

ENTONVILLE, Ark. — Wal-Mart heiress Alice Walton jolted the art world in 2005 by outbidding two venerable East Coast museums for an iconic New York painting, paying a record price for the 1849 Asher B. Durand work "Kindred Spirits."
The purchase heralded the avid collector's plan to found a major new museum of American art in northwest Arkansas, home of her late father's company. The project is starting to take physical shape since foundation pouring began in October.

Dubbed Crystal Bridges for a natural spring and the bridges that will span two ponds in the center of the compound, the glass-and-wood design by architect Moshe Safdie will cover 100,000 square feet when the museum opens in 2010.

It aims to be "a premier national art institution" dedicated to American art and artists from the Colonial period through the modern era, according to the museum website www.crystalbridges.com.

Bringing masterpieces to a folksy corner of the Ozarks better known for Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., has spurred some art world reactions "ranging from fascination to skepticism to fear," the journal ARTnews wrote. There is also excitement among art professionals over what some describe as a major new museum, one of only a handful nationally focused on American art history.

Hillbillys have class toooooo. They like a good paintin sumtimes.

I am glad to see those uppity art types are concerned. I think it will be a great thing for the area and will bring in tourists and maybe inspire some local talent.
