The Momentary museum in Bentonville, located in the former Craft Cheese facility, just had its one year celebration in late February. The museum announced on Monday its 2021 summer exhibitions schedule and a new outdoor installation. 2021 is already beginning to look totally different than 2020 did for this museum.
Abigail Deville: Light of Freedom
. This outdoor exhibit is a "13-foot-tall reference to the Statute of Liberty's torch encased in scaffolding and filled with found objects." Light of Freedom
reflects on the American promise and recent events within the Land of the Free. The exhibit
can be viewed March 25 - July 25, 2021.
Cauleen Smith: Space Station, Radiant behind the Sun
. "Filmmaker Cauleen Smith immerses audiences in a world that draws from Afrofuturism, science fiction, and experimental cinema. Visitors will walk through a transformed gallery space - a 'space station' with a 1970s aesthetic, new installations, drawings, banners, and immersive elements - while two of Smith's films, Sojourner
, play on alternating loops." The exhibition
can be seen June 26 - October 17, 2021.
Kenny Rivero: The Floor Is Crooked
. This is a solo exhibition of "drawings, paintings, and sculptures that focuses on works made over the last 10 years" by Kenny Rivero. The exhibit is "intended to be an investigation of Rivero's artistic practice and a focused look at themes that have been present in his work for the last decade." The Floor Is Crooked
can be viewed July 10 - October 24, 2021.
Garrett Bradley: American Rhapsody
. Garrett works across "narrative, documentary, and experimental modes of filmmaking to explore the social, economic, and racial politics of everyday life." His exhibit, American Rhapsody
features a selection of "three recent works by the artist - two single-channel videos and a multi-channel video installation." You can see his work
this summer starting July 3 - September 9, 2021.
As a reminder, these art experiences come at no cost to the public and the museum is free to enter.
