Arkansas Museum To Add Space

The Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Ark. — home to Walmart — has announced plans to transform a defunct Kraft cheese plant into a raw space for contemporary-art exhibitions, artists’ projects, music, theater and film. “This project is going to be huge for the younger generation, the millennials,” said Tom Walton, 32, a nephew of the museum’s founder, Alice L. Walton. He added that the hope was that Bentonville, whose population is 40,000, surrounded by rapidly growing neighborhoods and towns, would “become one of the hottest destinations in the country.” Hmmm.
