Since opening on 11/11/11, the Crystal Bridges museum has created quite a stir for its excellent collection and the beautiful design by architect Moshe Safdie. After coaching at a Labor Day weekend fencing tournament, we took a day to wend through the galleries. The highlight was standing face-to-face with a Gilbert Stuart portrait of George Washington.  We plan to go back when the temperatures are more conducive to wandering the many trails that wind through the museum grounds in its Ozark mountain setting and see what’s perhaps become its most famous piece, “Skyspace.”
