Summer at Crystal Bridges

Summer at Crystal Bridges

Crystal Bridges & Bentonville logos

This summer, Crystal Bridges invites you to visit Bentonville to explore indoor and outdoor exhibitions, art, sculpture, concerts, and more that will engage all your senses and inspire you to explore the natural world.

Discover two special exhibitions

Nature’s Nation: American Art and Environment: Similar to the mission of Crystal Bridges, Nature’s Nation illuminates the connection between art and nature. This summer, return to your roots and discover 300 years of American art and perspectives about our natural world.


Color Field: Take a whimsical romp through Color Field, a new outdoor exhibition featuring large, colorful sculptures against a backdrop of Ozark forest. Learn about color theory, interact with sculptures, see exciting work from today’s contemporary artists, and discover the impact color has on our lives.

See both exhibitions for the price of one combo ticket. Museum members, veterans, and youth 18 and under get into both exhibitions for free!


Dance and sing in the forest

Enjoy music each Saturday night this summer at the 2019 Forest Concert Series, surrounded by the evening glow of the beautiful North Forest and artwork installations ranging from the Dale Chihuly sculptures to the Color Field exhibition. See exciting regional and national bands including Yarn, Dawson Hollow, The Werks, Friends of the Phamily, Arkansauce, Black Pumas, Audiopharmacy, Flor De Toloache, Big Chief Juan Pardo, and Charlie Hunter Trio!

Chihuly favorites are permanently returning to Crystal Bridges! This summer, admire five acquired artworks from the 2017 exhibition Chihuly: In the Gallery + In the Forest around the galleries and grounds.
