Femininity in its purest form is being explored this summer at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. Angels & Tomboys: Girlhood in Nineteenth-Century American Art, opening June 29th, looks at the post-Civil War girl and her changing roles in American life and culture. This era in history marked a shift in what it meant to be a young lady in the United States, with the antebellum ideal shaping into a newer, more modern role.
Take a journey along various mediums through the perspectives of artists such as John Singer Sargent, Cecilia Beaux and Mary Cassatt. Through these works, we can form our own view about the life of the American girl in pre-Victorian America. Nestled in the trails of Crystal Bridges 120-acre site and only steps away from 21c Museum Hotel Bentonville and The Hive, Angels & Tomboys is a perfect excursion for you or your family during your stay with us or after a light lunch.
Angels & Tomboys: Girlhood in Nineteenth-Century American Art opens June 29th and will run through September 30th. For more information on the exhibition or Crystal Bridges please visit their website.
