Art Destinations from Marfa to Crystal Bridges

SBMA’s tour of Marfa and Crystal Bridges was offered in 2017 and sold out within two days. We are delighted to offer this program again, this time 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. We will explore the foundations, galleries, and studios that influence every part of life in this urbane outpost. We then travel to Bentonville, Arkansas, where Wal-Mart heiress Alice Walton created Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art and will also visit a Frank Lloyd Wright home, a private art collection, George Dombek’s art studio, and an exquisite Fay Jones chapel. This tour can easily be combined with the SBMA tour to Dallas and Fort Worth.
