As busy as October-November-December have been/will be for us in terms of travel, we decided to add Arkansas to our list of states visited together (23!) and drive to Bentonville to go to the State of the Art exhibition at Crystal Bridges. I’d kept hearing about Crystal Bridges, and this exhibition and an Audubon one I wanted to see are only going to be on display through December, so we went for it last weekend knowing the weather would be turning wintry soon. We had a slow start, and then I happened to see on the Roadside America app that there was a “drive-through safari” nearby, so we ended up only having an hour or so at the museum. But we did get to drive around looking at fallow deer and axis deer, longhorn cattle, white buffalo, zebras, camels, wolves, a “zedonk,” and more. That was neat.
The museum is pretty incredible. It’s in a beautiful location in the trees. The Audubon show is tiny, but State of the Art is really cool (I wrote about it on Muybridge’s Horse). Now I’m counting down the days til NYC. Two weeks!
