Wordless Wednesday - Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art

Unlike most museums Crystal Bridges is a series of linked buildings holding different exhibits. It was built by Alice Walton and the Walton Family Foundation -- a separate entity from Walmart. Walmart did give an endowment, however, to sponsor admission to the permanent collection meaning there is no admission to view the permanent collection ever.

Nice, I read about Ms. Walton's art hunting in the New Yorker. Nice to see about the 1% helping the 99% out a little. What a gift to the community.

A great gift, a fascinating array of buildings. I'd love to visit.

That seems to be a wonderful museum, the building as well as the art you showed in an earlier blog about it.
