Museum down the street

In our part of the state, we have the Walmart Home Office (world's largest retailer).
Alice Walton (richest lady in america?  I dunno)  founded Crystal Bridges Museum which opened in 2011.  This past Wednesday, Kris and I went (my first time) while the boys were in school.
Can you believe this is just a couple of miles from my house?!?  And free admission!!
 
It is full of American Art. 


This guy was super creepy!

So life-like!  Picture doesn't do it justice.
 
This guy wasn't as creepy ;)

This picture reminds me of Ferris Bueller :)
 
 It said these are from the 1700s.
I just have a hard time believing that.
Someone could've painted this yesterday ;)  

Outside there are tons of walking trails surrounding the museum. 
In the fall it's beautiful!!


 Can't wait to go back in the Spring when everything is green and beautiful!
Makes for a great photo op!!
 
Happy Weekend!
