Museum & Buildings
Trails and Grounds open daily sunrise to sunset.
The trails and museum will be closed June 6 – 8 for private events. The North Forest Trail will remain open to the public at these times.
Crystal Bridges is looking for temporary exhibitions featuring diverse artists and subjects which are thematic, inclusive, accessible, smart, timely, and innovative. Due to the high volume of proposals we receive and our calendar constraints, we have limited exhibition opportunities. Exhibitions are generally planned about two years in advance.
We accept proposals digitally or in hard copy, although digital proposals are preferred. Please do not send any original works or materials you would like returned as Crystal Bridges cannot be responsible for returning your items.
Our review process is thorough, and it may be several months before you are notified of our decision. A Crystal Bridges staff member will follow up with you should any additional materials be needed during the review process.
