Summer at Crystal Bridges:
Art, Nature, Color & More!

This summer, Crystal Bridges invites you to explore indoor and outdoor exhibitions, art, sculpture, concerts, and more that will engage all your senses and inspire you to explore the natural world.

Discover two special exhibitions: In the museum’s temporary exhibition galleries, discover Nature’s Nation, exploring how artists have portrayed our natural world over the past 300 years. Outside, be wonderstruck with colorful, bold sculptures against the backdrop of the North Forest in Color Field. Explore the grounds and welcome back four beloved Chihuly sculptures. Create art in the newly designed creative space, the Studio. Enjoy music and dance in the forest on Saturday evenings. Experience all this during this special summer of art, nature, color, and more at Crystal Bridges.


Chihuly Artworks

If you’ve been reminiscing about Chihuly: In the Gallery + In the Forest from summer 2017, Crystal Bridges recently acquired five artworks from the exhibition. Whether you have favorites you loved, or are discovering these works for the first time, you’ll enjoy a stunning chandelier in our galleries as well as four outdoor artworks installed along your route from Nature’s Nation to Color Field (two artworks are located within the ticketed Color Field exhibition).
