In the last two weeks I went to Bentonville, Arkansas to check out the new Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, brought to you by the family of Sam Walton, founder of Wal-Mart. The Post ran one of the stories, an overview of the project and its origins, on A1 and the other, a review of the architecture designed by Moshe Safdie, in our annual museum section. I also reviewed a performance of Philip Glass on the piano. An exhibition of African-American art–30 Americans–at the Corcoran Museum. A survey of the new (e)merge art festival in D.C. A performance of Beethoven and Orff at the National Symphony. And a lovely 100th anniversary retrospective of photographer Harry Callahan at the National Gallery of Art. It’s a busy season.
