On Black Friday, my son and I visited Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. He wanted to see the Stuart Davis exhibit and while I was a bit under the weather, I wanted to spend time with him. Plus, I’d not yet seen Chihuly in the Forest. So off we went.
Tomorrow (November 27) is the last day for Chihuly in the Forest. Thanks to Tate, I saw it. (A few years ago, John and I visited Chihuly Garden and Glass in Seattle. Go, if you get the chance. It is an incredible experience.) Go to Crystal Bridges today or tonight or tomorrow, if you can. If you can’t, take a look at these pictures and pretend you’re there.
As if the Ozark forest isn’t stunning enough, add Chihuly glass and the forest becomes downright magical.
Chihuly in the Forest
It goes without saying, these pictures don’t do justice to the glass. At night, the pieces are illuminated.

Stuart Davis in Full Swing
The Stuart Davis exhibit runs through January 1, so you still have time to catch it. Not only is the art fabulous but the history lesson is interesting. Davis was a leader in the American modern art movement. His work reflects the jazz period during which he lived, a period I find facsinating.
You can almost hear the piano playing as you study his work.
How lucky are we to live so near Crystal Bridges?
Very. The answer is very.
