Crystal Bridges to Create New Art Space Filled With Unique Experiences

News

BENTONVILLE, Ark. (KNWA) — Crystal Bridges is creating a new contemporary art space in Bentonville that will be completely free to the public.

“The Momentary” is a contemporary art space housed in the former Kraft Foods plant.

Thanks to a $2 million donation from Walmart, the new exhibit — featuring experimental, creative and gritty exhibits — is set to open by early 2020.

“The opportunity to bring great works of art and sharing it with everyone is amazing. So we inspire people to think differently, to dream and to do things in their communities that they want to do,” said Rod Bigelow, executive director and chief diversity inclusion officer for Crystal Bridges.

While Crystal Bridges will provide a traditional space for historical works, “The Momentary” offers a unique experience for patrons and hopes to draw artists to the area.
