Crystal Bridges’ Museum Store offers an engaging shopping experience in a one-of-a-kind environment. The Store’s unique interior was designed by Fayetteville-based architect Marlon Blackwell. Inspired by the fluting on the underside of a mushroom, the design features undulating rows of cherry-wood panels along the ceiling and back wall. Blackwell’s design received an American Institute of Architects Honor Award for Interior Design in 2015.

The Crystal Bridges Museum Store is pleased to feature the work of artist Dale Chihuly and Chihuly Workshop.
Chihuly has had a tremendous impact on the studio glass movement since the 1960s. His unique approach to glassblowing creates vibrant and energetic sculptures. Much of this energy is derived from the natural movement of the glass. Rather than using a plethora of tools to confine the shifting molten glass, he allows gravity to influence the material and determine its shape.
Chihuly’s exploration of color and form has evolved from small sculptures to large-scale installations, to vast environmental exhibitions wherein he creates habitats made entirely of glass.
Every year, Chihuly creates four Studio Editions. Each of these signed edition works is inspired by a specific series conceptualized by him throughout his career. Come in to view these remarkable artworks for yourself!

Architect Marlon Blackwell
Architect Marlon Blackwell designed the Museum Store at Crystal Bridges to be an organic complement to the Museum’s natural setting and distinctive architecture. Under a living green roof, the interior ceiling and walls are lined with undulating cherrywood ribs that mimic the fluting on the underside of a mushroom. Blackwell practices architecture in Fayetteville, Arkansas, and serves as distinguished professor and department head in the Fay Jones School of Architecture at the University of Arkansas.
