Crystal Bridges: Making the Case for Art, Field Trips, and Student Impact
Saturday, January 11, 2014
3 - 5 PM
In 2011, Alice Walton, heir to the Walmart estate, changed the cultural landscape of Arkansas with the founding of the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville. Now, from the first-ever study of its kind, Crystal Bridges demonstrates how a single museum visit can change the life of a child. Jay P. Greene, Chair of the Department of Education Reform at the University of Arkansas, will share the results of the study and its implications on education policy.
