At Crystal Bridges and the Momentary, we believe in the power of people and art to shape and sustain a just, empathetic, and creative society. Our community engagement work activates the museum’s resources and staff to build trust, welcome diverse perspectives, and nurture authentic relationships with the communities we serve.
The following pillars enable us to support and deepen community engagement through art, both inside and outside the museum:

The Arts and Social Impact Accelerator Program (ASAP) cultivates partnerships with social service agencies and local artists in Northwest Arkansas. These partnerships incubate ideas that creatively address social issues through collaboration, arts-based solutions, and socially engaged experiences.
Art in Communities meets people where they are, enhancing arts participation and improving quality of life by providing experiences that promote social connection and belonging. Traveling to underserved areas, community programming focuses on regional artists, encouraging storytelling among youth and families, social connecting, and empathy building.
