  • "We love getting complementary tickets to special exhibits for ourselves and a few guests. It’s great to introduce friends and family to Crystal Bridges. Exhibits seem more special when you get to glance across the room at a family member and drop your jaws in unison.
    Experiencing great art together makes it more meaningful."
    Mervin & Teryl Hampton Jebaraj
    Dual/Family + artinfusion Members
  • "I was very happy to learn that the Museum was opening up in Northwest Arkansas. I am from Chicago, and the museums in that city are a big part of the culture. Crystal Bridges has really brought a lot of different people from the region together. There is a lot of pride."
    Deborah Wright
    Sustaining Circle Member
  • "I can’t recall a family vacation where we didn’t visit a local art museum, art show, theater production, or concert. Now, we have the luxury of visiting a world-class art museum any time we want.
    I think this still awes us."
    Alice Havner
    Student Member
  • "I can hardly find words to describe the impact of the Museum – it’s such a boom to the region. I’ve been here since 1959 and things have changed tremendously. I think we are a region – we’re not Rogers, Fayetteville, Springdale – and the Museum is such a tremendous addition to the entire community."
    Nancy McVey
    Sustaining Circle Member
  • "By being a Member, I know that my support will help continue the journey the Museum is on—making art available for free (or low cost) to people in our community.  Northwest Arkansas has a lot to offer for everyone of any age.  Bringing Crystal Bridges to the area helped by putting Bentonville on the map and by giving the region access to one-of-a-kind opportunities to see art that they may never [otherwise] get the chance to see in their lifetime."
