Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art says it will announce on Thursday "the donor of a generous donation to benefit everyone who visits," and will show the media its main entrance.

I can't guess what that means exactly. The donor — maybe a Northwest Arkansas corporation? They're all expected to pony up. But something that benefits all who visit? Is that something to take home? A catalog? A DVD about art? A guide to Northwest Arkansas? Help me out here, Candy fans. I've been in New Orleans since Thursday and my mind hasn't quite recuperated. Got some ideas?

Here's another hint: The governor and Mrs. Beebe will be on hand for the 9:30 a.m. announcement, along with director Don Bacigalupi.
