BRIDGES OVER ARTISTIC WATERS

Crystal Bridges Museum Jazz Alperin

Thanks to the gracious invitation by the CRYSTAL BRIDGES MUSEUM OF AMERICAN ART, I participated in the inauguration of their new exhibition by painting live at the Museum Amphitheater on May 11th, 2016.

I am very grateful for the invitation and the opportunity to visit this incredible new American Museum.

Here are some images from the event, in which I had the pleasure of painting to the music of a great band, Crusades.

 


CRYSTAL BRIDGES MUSEUM OF AMERICAN ART

For those who don´t know this beautiful and exciting modern American Museum, here is a little introduction:

Alice Walton, the daughter of Walmart founder Sam Walton, spearheaded the Walton Family Foundation’s involvement in developing Crystal Bridges. The museum’s glass-and-wood design by architect Moshe Safdie and engineer Buro Happold features a series of pavilions nestled around two creek-fed ponds. The complex includes 217,000 square feet (20,200 m2) of galleries, several meeting and classroom spaces, a library, a sculpture garden, a gift shop designed by architect Marlon Blackwell, a restaurant and coffee bar.

Don Bacigalupi was appointed director of the museum in August 2009. In early May 2011, the museum announced three endowments by the Walton Family Foundation totaling $800 million. These endowments were established for operating expenses, acquisitions and capital improvements.

Notable works include a Charles Willson Peale portrait of George Washington as well as paintings by George Bellows, Jasper Cropsey, Asher Durand, Thomas Eakins, Marsden Hartley, Winslow Homer, Eastman Johnson, Charles Bird King, John LaFarge, Stuart Davis, Romare Bearden, Norman Rockwell, Mary McCleary, Agnes Pelton, Walton Ford, Chuck Close, Jasper Johns, Alfred Maurer, Jackson Pollock and Tom Wesselman.


Until next time!

Art under the Sun

As most of you know, thanks to the Naples Art Association, and in conjunction with the Stay in Naples Festival 2016 (formerly the ArtNaples Festival) I am exhibiting in this beautiful little piece of Paradise.

The care that is taken in every detail, and the beauty and tranquility of its palm lined streets, can only be matched by the warmth and open smile of its inhabitants.

For those who have never been to this beautiful town and its glorious beaches, I urge you to have a look at some Art under the Sun… (music by Michael Franks)

See you next time.

Ignacio
