Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art Expansion
Nearly doubling the size of the current facilities, the expansion will add to the collection of elegant pavilions nestled within the sloping landscape. Continued use of regional materials such as concrete, timber, and fieldstone are sourced from Northwest Arkansas and celebrate 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 will begin in early 2022 with the goal of completing construction in 2024. As a precursor to the expansion, a reconfigured main lobby and courtyard was completed in May of 2021.
