Crystal Bridges – Exquisite Creatures

In Northwest Arkansas, we have access to world-renowned art right in our backyard. Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art opened in 2011 and has welcomed over 6 million visitors. That number continues to grow each year as new exhibits & events are hosted on the 120-acre campus. Through a sponsorship provided by Fortune 500 company Walmart, general admission to the museum is completely free. Inside the museum you will find sculptures, paintings, photographs, installations, and more from famous artists dating back 5 five centuries ago. 

In addition to the museum’s permanent collection, there are temporary exhibits that are showcased from time to time. These exhibits typically have an entry fee and are only available for viewing for a certain period of time. These exhibitions can include works of art, installations, shows, documentaries, and more.

We visited one of the current temporary exhibitions at Crystal Bridges- Exquisite Creatures 

Exquisite Creatures is a dialogue with art, nature, and science that asks the question: what is it about the natural world that calls to us? Throughout the exhibition, artist and naturalist Christopher Marley reflects on humanity’s intimate relationship with nature, revealing its intricate beauty and diversity through three-dimensional works comprised of animal, mineral, and plant specimens arranged in precise, geometric compositions. Shown together, the works create an immersive environment which inspires wonder and fosters a desire to preserve the natural world.” – Crystal Bridges 

You can view this exhibit from now until July 29, 2024. The entry is $12 for adult general admission. To learn more about the artist, Christopher Marley, and get tickets click here
