A Museum Near You: Crystal Bridges

crystalbridgesOne of the many joys of being a traveling textile teacher is the opportunity to visit great museums. With my gracious hostess, Laura, I recently visited Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art before giving a lecture to her guild, Q.U.I.L.T of Northwest Arkansas.

mirrorroomWhat a fabulous museum! The buildings, setting, and artwork were a delight to see.  We stepped into a work by Yayoi Kusama called the Infinity Mirrored Room – My Heart is Dancing into the Universe and viewed gallery after gallery artwork from early American to contemporary work. Thank you Laura for your generosity!

What are the benefits of visiting a museum (other than the gift shop)?

A visit to a museum:

  • stimulates new ideas for your own artwork,
  • expands your knowledge of the world and humanity, and
  • is a refreshing break from reality.

Make a date with a museum today. Trust me, you’ll fall in love.
