Arkansas y'all!

Today we visited the Crystal Bridges museum in Bentonville Arkansas. The museum has spectacular grounds. I love the Roxy Paine tree!

 I was especially impressed by this James Turrell piece. My next visit will include a viewing during sunrise and sunset.
 I really like the more modern pieces in the permanent collection... Here are some of the highlights....

 Hans Hoffmann
 Miriam Shapiro
Nick Cave

Another revelation was the 21 c hotel. It is museum/boutique hotel. It was amazing- the juxtaposition between small town southern square and high end contemporary art was jarring. However, I loved the playfulness of the collection and the warm staff. After visiting Chelsea so often, it was different to be welcomed into the space.
This piece is in the hotel gym... motivational?
