Member Scoop: Journey of an Artwork

Shuttle Stop
This event has passed

A museum is more than the last stop for a work of art—it’s just the beginning of its journey.

Join us for a unique opportunity to learn the behind-the-scenes journey of an artwork from Crystal Bridges’ preparatory and collections management teams. You’ll experience the little-seen process that makes the museum experience possible, from the arrival of an artwork to its carefully chosen place on the gallery walls.

Free for members, registration required. Register online or with Guest Services at (479) 657-2335 to reserve your spot today.
