Bears in the Ozarks

Posted By on Thu, Sep 11, 2008 at 12:46 PM

More news from Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art: "Group of Bears," a posthumous cast of a sculpture by Paul Manship, was unveiled today at Compton Gardens in Bentonville, on the south edge of the Walton Family property. It is the first piece of sculpture in the collection assembled by Alice Walton for the museum to be made public. If you've ever been to New York City you've seen sculpture by Manship (1885-1966): He created the gilded "Prometheus" in Rockefeller Plaza in New York City. Manship's cast of "A Group of Bears" is in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
