When it comes to the Crystal Bridges Museum, the brainchild of Alice Walton, the daughter of Wal Mart founder Sam Walton, anything is possible. The building that houses the Museum was designed by Moshe Safdie, the Museum has amassed nearly half a billion dollars worth of art, and now, it is going to have its own Frank Lloyd Wright’s house, the Bachman-Wilson House, a Usonian home, which Wright built in New Jersey in 1954 for Abraham Wilson and Gloria Bachman. As the house was in danger of deteriorating due to flooding at it was situated along the Millstone River, its owners determined that relocating the house was necessary for its preservation. This is when the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas, stepped up and acquired the home, moved it to Arkansas as of last year, and now plans to open it to the pubic on November 11, 2015 to celebrate the museum’s four-year anniversary.
