Art Destinations from Marfa to Crystal Bridges
SBMA’s exclusively-designed program to Marfa and Crystal Bridges quickly sold out in 2017 and 2018. Explore two far-flung extraordinary art destinations, beginning in the wide-open spaces of West Texas and continuing to the Ozarks of Northwest Arkansas. This custom-designed SBMA-exclusive tour begins with three nights in the remote Texas town of Marfa, which was transformed by artist Donald Judd, a major figure in the Minimalist Art movement of the 1960s, into a mecca for minimalist art when he moved there in the 70s from New York City. Explore the art installations, galleries, and studios that influence every part of life in this cultural enclave. Travel to Bentonville, Arkansas, where Wal-Mart heiress Alice Walton created Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art and also visit a Frank Lloyd Wright home, George Dombek’s art studio, and an exquisite Fay Jones chapel.
