Crystal Bridges

WordCamp Fayetteville will keep you busy with parties on Friday and Saturday nights, sessions all day Saturday, and a Sunday Jam Session.

If you come in early or stay on for an extra day or two, though, you should not miss Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, a world-class museum in Bentonville, about a half hour north of Fayetteville.

The architecture is stunning, there is a fine and varied collection of American art work from colonial times to the present, and the restaurant at the museum is an excellent place to enjoy a gourmet lunch.

Current exhibitions include Andy Warhol’s nature photos, which you probably haven’t seen before.


There’s a beautiful sculpture walk as well.

You can see all the artworks in half an hour, if you want to stop off quickly on your way to or from WordCamp, but there are beautiful walks on the grounds, including the short and easy Art Trail as well as longer trails that connect with Downtown Bentonville and the Compton Gardens.
