Crystal bridges trip

These are photographs from our Fall trip to Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas.  
We took 55 students and several parents as chaperones to see this amazing museum!  It started out with a guided tour by a professional staff member.   One of the artworks on the docket was 'Rosie the Riveter" by Norman Rockwell, a recent acquisition for Crystal Bridges.  They fed us a nutritious lunch, we explored the trails and Frank Lloyd Wright Building and when the museum opened officially at 11 we went in to the galleries, visited the shop, went to the activity center and enjoyed the day!  Back on the bus around 1 and back to school!  Students did great representing Carthage Junior High, and the Museum opened up worlds of art to my students!
