Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art is installing a monumental cedar wall sculpture by Ursula Von Rydingsvard on the northwest end of the Gallery Bridge.

The 18 pieces that make up the work, "Unraveling," are being assembled by museum preparators in view of guests to the museum. In an article about the work in Artnet (which includes an image of the completed sculpture), Alexandra Anderson-Spivey writes that the artist's "dense, eccentric, craggy sculptures fascinate me, yet I can’t remember any art that has made me so strangely uneasy."

According to Artnet, Von Rydingsvard's work is included in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; High Museum of Art, Atlanta; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; Neuberger Museum of Art, Purchase, New York; and Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, Kansas City.

In a clever collaboration with the Central Arkansas Library System, 3D objects from the permanent collection will be exhibited at CALS branches, its Main Library, and the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies.

    A ban on turtle harvesting in the Gulf Coastal Plain and along the St. Francis River in Clay and Green counties voted on today by the state Game and Fish Commission won't make much of a dent in the total take of freshwater turtles in Arkansas — 0.2 percent come from the Gulf Coastal Plain for example —  but the commission did agree to study whether its trapping rules are having a negative consequence on native turtles.
