The permanent collection of Crystal Bridges tells the unfolding story of the United States from the Colonial era to the present through its great works of American visual art.  Several themes clearly resonate throughout:artists’ encounters with and response to nature; strong women, both as subjects and makers of art; the ongoing dialogue between American artists and other world cultures; and the continuing role of the artist as innovator.  Although Crystal Bridges is less than three years old, the use of FTC facilitates deeper understandings of formal, thematic, and contextual qualities of  works of art within this museum. The FTC Palette provides a balanced structure for exploring Crystal Bridges’ uniqueness in terms of meaningful art criteria accessible to viewers of all ages.
