NY Times Looks at the Move to Arkansas for Crystal Bridges Director

Posted on 27 March 2012 by admin

The New York Times again writes about Crystal Bridges in Bentonville, this time taking a look at the move from Ohio to Arkansas for museum director
Don Bacigalupi, Dan Feder and their son:

There’s one house in Bentonville, Ark., that looks nothing like the others. It was designed in 1954 by Cecil Stanfield, a Modernist architect who helped give Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Okla., (two hours west) its “Jetsons”-esque appearance. The house’s large windows are the kind that people in small towns tend to associate with storefronts. That meant the lives of its owners would be displayed as surely as the merchandise in Sam Walton’s first five-and-dime, just a few blocks away. Which made it, paradoxically, the right house for Don Bacigalupi, Dan Feder and their 6-year-old son, Guston. “We live our lives very openly,” says Feder, a graphic designer and stay-at-home dad, who has been with Bacigalupi, a respected museum director, since the early 1990s.
