Crystal Bridges: A work in progress

Posted By on Wed, Sep 15, 2010 at 12:18 PM


Leslie Peacock is in Bentonville today for a work-in-progress media tour of the Crystal Bridges museum. The main news is that there's still no completion date for the Alice Walton-driven museum of American art but all were impressed by the work so far. "She's building the pyramids," said one tour guest. Some $2 million worth of new acquisitions were announced today, including Andy Warhol's 1985 painting of Dolly Parton (the polymer and silkscreen ink on canvas was sold by Sotheby's in May for $914,000). Acquisitions also include Roy Lichtenstein's sculpture, Standing Explosion (Red), sold at Christie's in May for $722,500, and Benjamin West's Cupid and Psyche. The Corcoran Gallery once owned it, but sold it at Christie's last year for $458,500. Leslie will be reporting more on Eye Candy before long.
