Lunder Institute @ Crystal Bridges: Bite-Sized Conversations

Thursday, March 7, 2024,

Great Hall, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, 600 Museum Way, Bentonville, Arkansas

American art is dynamic! Are you curious about how Crystal Bridges thinks about the pressing issues of American Art? How are new directions in American art reflected in our collection? How will multiple perspectives impact our new galleries?

In partnership with the Colby College Museum of Art’s Lunder Institute for American Art, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art will present Bite-Sized Conversations, an evening of short conversations that showcase the work and stories of regional artists Danielle Hatch, Linda Nguyen Lopez, and Kalyn Barnoski. Each conversation between an artist and a Crystal Bridges curator is paired with either a beverage, tasty treat, or craft activity. The curators leading the program include Curator of Contemporary Art Alejo Benedetti, Windgate Curator of Craft Jen Padgett, and Curator of Indigenous Art Jordan Poorman Cocker.

Tickets are $5 (free for students), reserve your spot online or call Crystal Bridges guest services at (479) 657-2335.
Ticket includes one alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverage and curated hors d’oeuvre.

This program is part of the Lunder Institute @ initiative and is co-presented by the Lunder Institute for American Art, a part of the Colby College Museum of Art. Lunder Institute @ invites institutions to be in conversation with one another and challenges them to look critically at American art, its history, its future and its evolution.
