Art Bridges, a new nonprofit created by Crystal Bridges Museum of Art founder Alice Walton, will work to encourage art-sharing by museums large and small, the nonprofit announced today. A post on the Rock Candy blog has more on Walton's latest art-centered venture, which follows closely on the heels of the Walton Family Foundation's gift of $120 million to the University of Arkansas to create the School of Art (read here and here).

Art Bridges also maintains its own art collection, including the work above, "Untitled" by American sculptor Robert Gober.
