On this special autumn journey, venture to America's heartland for an exploration of Kansas City's world-class museums and, in Bentonville, Arkansas, a full-day private tour of the innovative Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. In Kansas City, embark on an exclusive tour of the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, which will introduce you to the architectural vision of Moshe Safdie, who also designed Crystal Bridges. Join curators to discover the city's wealth of internationally acclaimed art collections, including Missouri-born artist Thomas Hart Benton's works in his well-preserved home and studio; the comprehensive displays at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art; and works by Pollock, Rauschenberg, and Johns in the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art. Journey 200 miles south to the Ozarks to experience how Crystal Bridges, the brainchild of Alice Walton, has transformed an Arkansas town into a global art mecca. Immerse yourself in Moshe's glass pavilions surrounded by forest and shimmering ponds, and savor a curator-led look at works by O'Keeffe, Rockwell, Asher B. Durand, Ben Shahn, and other masters.
