600 Museum Way, Bentonville, AR 72712, United States

As most of the great western art museums focus on European art—and rightfully so—American works often gets lost in the mix. Perhaps that’s what’s most inspiring about Crystal Bridges, dedicated solely to American art. It’s easy to see how the national historic events inspired artists’ works, from portraits of George Washington by Charles Willson Peale and Gilbert Stuart to modern and contemporary pieces by Donald Judd and Jasper Johns. Don’t miss a stroll through the beautiful sculpture gardens, as well as a sunset sit-in on James Turrell’s skyspace, “The Way of Color.”
