Art at Crystal Bridges
The Crystal Bridges art collection offers a superb overview of American art. The galleries include American masterworks and surprising lesser-known gems from the colonial era to today. Sculptures grace both interior galleries and outdoor trails. The museum’s permanent collection galleries are refreshed regularly. New acquisitions and works from the museum’s vaults are displayed on a rotating basis. In addition, familiar guest favorites and a changing array of special focus groupings and temporary installations of light-sensitive works further connect Crystal Bridges’ to their message of art, architecture, and nature.
In addition, a year-round schedule of special exhibitions ensures that there is always something new to see at the museum. Guests may also browse selections from the Crystal Bridges permanent collection online through eMuseum, and view gallery highlights via the museum’s free app, CBMuseum, downloadable to Apple or Android devices.
A year-round schedule of temporary exhibitions enhances the guest experience of the Crystal Bridges' 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.
