A Walk In The Woods - Chihuly In The Forest at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art.

We're all looking for a little connection. One November afternoon, Grav and I took a walk in the woods to see what it would bring. Mind you, it was $10 a person and we were going to look at a famous glass sculptor's work, but still...

We've been dawdling all year about making a visit to Crystal Bridges to see the Chihuly exhibits - which is why we entirely missed out on seeing the in-museum exhibit. Still, finding ourselves just a few days before the end of the second exhibit, we found our way to Bentonville for a couple hours.

First thing I discovered was hey, the exhibit's going on another couple of weeks (until November 27th), so maybe I should share a little of what we saw on a wooded path in the forest.

We purchased our tickets at the desk at the entrance and made our way to the lower level, where an attendant pointed us to a solitary elevator shaft outside. Once we'd ridden upwards, we crossed a catwalk and joined an asphalt-lined path to a flat forested area atop a hill.

Another attendant took our tickets and gave us stamps to come back later for a light show, then let us loose to marvel at the pieces along the path.  

We started with the pavilion at the apex point of the circular trail. And this is where I'm going to stop droning on and show you what we saw.

That moment when passersby realize you match the installation. This was unintentional.
