Crystal Bridges 2023 Exhibitions Unveiled


Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art has unveiled its schedule of traveling exhibits that will be coming to the museum in 2023.

In addition to the world-class collection of artwork already on display as part of the museum’s permanent collection, seven additional exhibits or experiences will make their way to Northwest Arkansas this year as part of the museum’s temporary exhibit schedule.

Among them, the Listening Forest outdoor light and sound installation in the wooded area around the museum that debuted over the early winter months of 2022 will return for a warmer-weather event this spring. The exhibit, which includes music by composer Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, brings together eight immersive installations and uses light, sound, and projections to create an interactive walk through the woods. Here’s more information about the project. Listening Forest will be open from March 1 to May 28.

In March, the museum will feature a traveling show featuring more than 150 works by Mexican-born painter and muralist Diego Rivera. The exhibit will include several of Rivera’s well-known works, including Dance in Tehuantepec (1928), The Flowered Canoe (1931), Nude with Calla Lilies(1944), other depictions of flower carriers and vendors, and three major paintings by Frida Kahlo including a self-portrait of Kahlo standing next to Rivera. The show also includes some rarely seen works from private collections, major paintings on loan from museums in both the United States and Mexico, studies for pivotal mural projects in Mexico City, San Francisco, Detroit, and New York, as well as large-scale digital projections that convey the immersive quality of his epic murals. Diego Rivera’s America will be on display March 11- July 31.

The museum will host a group show centered around representations of the U.S. flag called Flagged for Discussion featuring the work of more than 20 artists over the summer. The show, curated by Larissa Randall, includes work created from the 19th century to today, intended to reveal “how the flag functions differently within works of painting, printmaking, fiber, photography, and mixed media.” The exhibit will be on display April 8 through Sept. 23.
