Exciting new art is coming to Northwest Arkansas this summer, as Crystal Bridges Museum in Bentonville prepares to feature work by American sculptor Dale Chihuly.
While Chihuly works mostly with glass, he is also known for using a variety of mediums, including ice, paint and neon. His works will be featured inside the museum’s temporary exhibition gallery as well as outside in the beautiful woods of the Ozarks. Tickets range from $10 to $20 and can be purchased in advance on the Crystal Bridges website.
Artosphere: Arkansas' Arts and Nature Festival returns June 10 - 29, 2019. The festival, presented by the Walton Arts Center, celebrates artists influenced by nature, who inspire us to live more sustainable lives.
“As we celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Artosphere Festival in 2019, which coincides with the 50th anniversary of man walking on the moon, we are focusing thematically on space. Since the dawn of time, space has been a source of wonder, innovation, and artistic inspiration for all the world’s people. Further, man’s exploration of space has given us the technology to look back on ourselves and observe both the Earth’s changing ecosystem and our shared humanity. In that Artosphere was designed to explore the intersection of arts + nature, always with an eye toward sustainability, space seems like the perfect theme.” – Scott Galbraith, Vice President of Programming and Executive Producer
