And now, from Northwest Arkansas: Adolph Gottlieb

Adolph Gottlieb, Trinity
  • Adolph Gottlieb, "Trinity"

Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art's membership brochure has on its cover a picture of a couple with a large abstract painting behind them. It's Adolph Gottlieb's "Trinity," which was sold just weeks ago — May 11 — at auction at Sotheby's.

This 1962 painting — which is a New-York-School-sized 185 inches wide by 80 inches high — was sold by the Detroit Institute of Arts. Auction price paid: $1,142,500. Read more about Adolph Gottlieb here. Alice Walton isn't cooling off; she's collecting with passion.

Seeing the Gottlieb on the brochure distracted me a bit from the purpose of my requesting it — to find out what membership fees will be in the museum. Students may join for $35, individuals for $55, families for $75, and then there are various levels of sponsorship, up to the $20,000 Director's Guild. Memberships are tax deductible, the brochure says. The museum has chosen the weekend of uniquely American holiday — Independence Day — to launch the membership drive; events in Northwest Arkansas are planned July 1-4.

The perks of membership: Complimentary or discounted tickets to select exhibitions, invitations to member-only events, a complimentary subscription to Museum Magazine and a 10 percent discount in the Museum Store.
