Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville has two exhibitions opening this spring that are not to be missed! In the galleries, discover the first major exhibition focused solely on Mexican artist Diego Rivera in over 20 years. Then, after the sun goes down, experience the spectacular return of Listening Forest outside along the trails. 

Opening March 11 | Diego Rivera’s America 

Diego Rivera’s America examines this prolific time in the artist’s life through more than 150 works, including his drawings, easel paintings, frescoes, and more. Discover the broad range of Rivera’s work through a series of thematic sections that bring together more works from this time period than have been seen together since the artist’s lifetime. See some of his most popular works such as Dance in Tehuantepec (1928), Nude with Calla Lilies (1944), and The Flower Carrier (1935), plus digital projections of his murals, including Pan American Unity, and three major paintings by Frida Kahlo. 

Open March 11 through July 31, 2023. Museum members, SNAP participants, veterans, and youth 18 and under receive FREE admission. Get tickets here.

Opening March 1 | Listening Forest by Rafael Lozano-Hemmer

After its successful debut last August, Listening Forest returns to Crystal Bridges. Created by artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, Listening Forest uses light, sound, and projections to create an interactive, nighttime walk through the woods. This site-specific exhibition brings together eight immersive installations, each one activated by visitor participation. Visitors can add their heartbeat to a field of 3,000 lightbulbs, control giant, 20-foot-tall stick figures made of light, and more! 

Open March 1 through May 28, 2023, and August 30 through December 31, 2023. Children 18 and under are FREE to attend with an adult ticket holder. Get tickets here.
