Description

The Art of Crystal Bridges

The Art of Crystal Bridges is a half-hour documentary film that tells the story of the first museum dedicated to American art, to open in 50 years.
In a deep Ozark ravine near Bentonville, Arkansas, is a place of discovery, designed by acclaimed architect Moshe Safdie.
The film tells anecdotal stories about the art and artists, and provides a captivating behind-the-scenes glimpse into galleries that walk visitors through the twists and turns of history. Many styles and mediums are represented, from the Colonial era to the first part of the 21st century. The collection includes portraits of George Washington, Alexander Hamilton and Bill Clinton. Norman Rockwell’s iconic Rosie the Riveter is on display, and so is Andy Warhol’s Dolly Parton. There are landscapes by the Hudson River School artists of the 19th Century, and works by such artists as Georgia O’Keeffe and Thomas Hart Benton.
