Arkansas Art Museum Widens Diversity

Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art (founded by Alice Walton and designed by Moshe Sadie) built its foundation on the idea of access for all, and the museum is taking steps to continue living up to the mission this year.

Executive Director Rod Bigelow said the Bentonville-based museum is widening the scope of its diversity and inclusion efforts, some of which will be apparent to museum visitors in a pair of recent acquisitions and the first full-scale bilingual exhibition, which will open next month. Crystal Bridges also has hired additional staff focused on diversity and inclusion and developed more services as part of its community outreach programs.

Bigelow said the extended efforts -- along with the museum's continued work with ongoing programs -- is part of a sharpened focus on diversity and inclusion.
