DVDs are available in the Crystal Bridges Museum Shop.

A free public screening of the documentary film that chronicles the development of Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art is set for 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 29 inside the Walker Community Room at the Fayetteville Public Library.

The half-hour film, The Art of Crystal Bridges, tells the story behind the founding and development of a major national museum – the first devoted to American artwork to open in half a century – in the heart of the Ozarks.

The film includes interviews with museum curators and designers, as well as architect Moshe Safdie and philanthropist Alice Walton.

Written and produced by Larry Foley, the film is narrated by Mary Steenburgen and includes an original music score by James Greeson.
