Alice Walton

Her wealth surpasses Jeff Bezos’ billionaire ex wife MacKenzie Scott and even eclipses Walmart’s Alice Walton by a huge margin. This is the richest woman in the world in 2022.

The likes of Kim Kardashian and Rihanna may be self-made billionaires, but most of the world’s richest women are actually worth at least 10 times what they are. The difference is that in most cases their wealth was inherited. But whether they were born into a dynasty or married into their windfall, even the richest woman on earth only has a net worth that’s a third of Elon Musk’s US$218 billion fortune. Still, one woman’s fortune is enough to at least beat Meta founder Mark Zuckerberg’s wealth of US$71 billion.

How Alice Walton is Bringing the Art World to Bentonville, Arkansas

Louise Bourgeois’s Maman spider presides over the courtyard that leads to the south entrance to the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. It’s a fitting welcome to the 200,000-square-foot museum, in Bentonville, Arkansas, that is Alice Walton’s baby. Nestled on 120 acres of Ozarks forest, where young Walton and her brothers, heirs to the Walmart fortune, would ride horses and hike, the institution will celebrate its 10th anniversary this month and embark upon a vast expansion, both of the museum and of Walton’s philanthropic vision.

Alice Walton Envisions the Future of American Art

With Crystal Bridges, the world-class museum she founded in Bentonville, Arkansas, the arts patron is transforming the nation’s cultural landscape. The drive out of the Northwest Arkansas National Airport, which serves the tiny town of Bentonville, is defined by flat fields dotted with cows and enormous bales of hay. There are also McMansions lined up in neat rows—a little bit too close to one another, considering their size—industrial parks, at least one “Trump 2024” sign, and a Walmart Neighborhood Market, Walmart to Go, Walmart Supercenter, and Walmart Regional Distribution Center. But the landscape suddenly changes as you drive into the few blocks that make up Bentonville’s quaint Third Street Historic District, the center of which is a plaza filled with trees, flowers, and, in the evenings, a jazz band made up of teens on drums and saxophone. Nearby is the site where the first ever Walmart, Sam Walton’s original five-and-dime store, once stood. It’s now a museum, complete with a soda fountain shop selling $2.25 ice cream floats, and something called a MoonPie Palooza that’s billed as “Sam’s Favorite.”
