Young Artists Workshop with artist Kristen Cliffel

Dec 20th @ 1:00pm - 4:00pm
Location: Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art

(For ages 6 to 12) You know those little mementos and objects that accumulate in junk drawers and shoeboxes?  You’ve kept these ticket stubs, baby teeth, and the like because they trigger a memory or an emotion.  Artist Kristen Cliffel describes herself as “a storyteller that happens to make sculpture.”  Join Cliffel to create works of art including and inspired by your own bits and pieces of life, and create a three-dimensional work of art that tells your story! Sponsored by the Crystal Bridges Art Now Fund.  Participants should bring their own mementos to be included in the work. All other materials are provided. $15 ($12 for Members), register online or by calling Guest Services at 479.657.2335.

Mi Casa es su Casa | Salsa Night at the Museum

Dec 20th @ 8:00pm

In the spirit of Las Posadas, a nine-day celebration of Christmas observed throughout much of the US, Mexico, and Central America, Crystal Bridges welcomes all to get to know the Museum as their home—Mi Casa es su Casa! Please join us for a salsa dance party after hours in the picturesque Great Hall, and explore the Museum’s “home” in the State of the Art: Discovering American Art Now exhibition.  DJ Midnite will be on the turn-table with Latin beats, and Barbie Bell presents dancing lessons. Guests are encouraged to dress in their best holiday fashions of red and white! Bar drinks available for purchase. This event has limited capacity, so be sure to register!  Registrants enter a raffle for a free-one year family membership. Free with online registration.  If there is inclement weather, cancellation will be determined the day of the event at noon. Special thanks to our collaborators, the Hispanic Latino Associate Resource Group. Free, with online registration.
