It’s hard to believe, but The Momentary in downtown Bentonville is celebrating one year! The building that was once a cheese factory is now a space for visual and performing arts, food, and festivals, but the vast majority of its short history has been during the pandemic, having only three weeks before closing until June to prevent the spread of COVID-19. However, in its first year, The Momentary has hosted blood drives, online meditation, and yoga, and joined Crystal Bridges in a social connecting campaign for isolated people. Congrats, Momentary! We look forward to your future programming!
