Fun at the Museum

Who says you can’t have fun at a museum? We sure did!

Here’s some pictures of our fun times at the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, AR.

I didn’t know Uncle Jimmy had this kind of talent! I think I’m going to start calling him,

Look, it’s “Estochio!” Wait, I mean Pinocchio!

Good one, Mom!!

In all seriousness though, this was a wonderful museum! I had a lot of fun admiring the paintings and sculptures. It’s hard for me to believe people can paint such beautiful scenes and that they have the imagination to make such pieces.

What’s even more amazing though is the God who created this intricate, amazing, too wonderful to say world….from…nothing! He is infinite in His creativity and ability! Each of us is limited but the Lord sure did give us great inspiration!

Here are a few more of my favorite pieces from the museum.

This looks like a real man’s picture…but it’s actually a sculpture! Everything was so incredibly life like that it was almost creepy! The hair, lips, eyes, skin…everything looked REAL!

This next picture shows how big it actually is…

This version of The Last Supper was made from hundreds, if not thousands, of individual spools of threads that are different colors! And…it was upside down! When you looked through this clear sphere, it allowed you to view it right side up…
