The creation of the Tyson Scholars for American Art program at the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art was announced this morning in Bentonville. The Tyson family and Tyson Foods together contributed $5 million to the creation of the scholars program, which, according to a press release will be a "groundbreaking, collaborative program with national reach and regional initiatives regarding the study of American art."

John Tyson, chairman of Tyson Foods Inc., which is growing its art collection, joined Crystal Bridges Director Don Bacigalupi, museum curator of American Art Kevin Murphy, and University of Arkansas art history professor Leo Mazow.
