Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art Expansion
The expansion will increase the current facility by 50%, adding to the collection of elegant pavilions nestled within the sloping landscape. Continued use of regional materials such as concrete, timber, and fieldstone, sourced from Northwest Arkansas, celebrates the region’s craft traditions. New interior and exterior connections throughout the project create links between the galleries and program spaces and the surrounding park and trails. Construction on the expanded pavilions began in early 2022. As a precursor to the expansion, a reconfigured main lobby and courtyard was completed in May of 2021.
