Exhibitions

The permanent collection of Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art spans five centuries, featuring masterworks by artists from Colonial times through today. The collection on view in the Museum’s main galleries is arranged chronologically, providing guests with an overview of both the art and the history of America. A year-round schedule of temporary exhibitions enhances the guest experience of the Museum’s permanent collection by providing opportunities to enjoy traveling exhibitions from other institutions, or special presentations of artworks from our own and other museum collections, organized by Crystal Bridges.
