Event Description

Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, 600 Museum Way in Bentonville, AR, presents "Art for a New Understanding: Native Voices, 1950s to Now" opening Saturday Oct. 6 and running through January 7, 2019. Contemporary Indigenous art comes front and center in this new, free exhibition organized by Crystal Bridges. Discover new stories as today’s Indigenous artists fill the gallery with exquisite colors, images of community and joy, and thought-provoking moments of reflection. The exhibition features over 80 artworks from the 1950s to today, including paintings, photography, video, sculptures, performance art, and more, all created by Indigenous US and Canadian artists. Spend some time with artworks by an artist who creates social critiques through basket weaving, three sisters who challenge heavy topics with humor and heart, an artist who created a large-scale mural based on her Northwest Arkansas environmental experience, plus many more. Admission to "Art for a New Understanding" is free, but you'll need a free ticket--pick one up at Crystal Bridges Guest Services desk or online.
