Golden Adventurers “On the Go – Again!”
On Friday June 3rd, we will travel to Bella Vista, Arkansas to the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. The Museum welcomes all to celebrate the American spirit in a setting that unites the power of art with the beauty of nature. We explore the unfolding story of America by actively collecting, exhibiting, interpreting, and preserving outstanding works that illuminate our heritage and artistic possibilities.
The museum is free but admission to “The Open Road” Exhibit is $10. We will leave approximately 8 am. Please plan on eating at least one meal out. There is a restaurant (closes at 2:30 pm) on site as well as a coffee shop with sandwiches, chips, desserts and drinks on site.
Picasso! Grace Kelly! George Washington! Andy Warhol! And Rosie the Riveter! These are just a very few of the special art pieces housed by the Crystal Bridges Art Museum. With some pieces on loan from the George Eastman Museum and other locations, there is no end to the diversity of the art displayed. Look for the TV man! Marble Statues! And yes, there is even a quilt! Oh, beware the two story spider!
“The Open Road” exhibit is worth the time! The price of this exhibit is separate and only costs $10. Photos of the past come alive along Route 66, THE destination of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. There is also a short film montage in the theater that really explores the film-making ideas of the time. Read the newsletter here.
