How a Walmart Heir's Arkansas Museum Became a Soldier in The Culture Wars

Almost ten years ago—Nov. 11, 2011 to be exact—Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art opened its doors. The spotlight was immediately bright. It was the first major league museum built in the U.S in decades and the founder, Walmart heir Alice Walton and the family's foundation, poured hundreds of millions into the building, designed by super architect Moshe Safdie, as well as the collection. One of the more striking examples: The $35 million-plus Walton paid, or some say overpaid, the New York Public Library for the Hudson River landscape, Kindred Spirits, by Asher Durand, a record at the time for an American painting. You, and everyone else, could also see Kindred Spirits for free thanks to Walmart.
