Bentonville, Ark.– Several new books about American art were donated to Bentonville Public Library as part of a unique pilot project to distribute art books to sixteen Arkansas libraries.
The contribution was made possible through a gift by the Alice L. Walton Foundation through the Arkansas State Library and Arkansas Center for the Book in collaboration with Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. The purpose of the gift is to increase access to content about American Art.
Over twenty beautiful works, valued at more than $1,400, are featured through a special display and are available for checkout at BPL. Each book contains a special bookplate acknowledging the donation.
Some titles include African-American Art; Women, Art and Society; Native American Art in the Twentieth Century; and Crystal Bridges’ publication Celebrating the American Spirit.
