Lieven Bertels Announced as New Director of a New Art Space in Bentonville, Arkansas

Friday, September 1, 2017   (0 Comments)

Join us in congratulating ISPA Member Lieven Bertels on his new appointment as Director of Momentary, a new art space in Bentonville, Arkansas. As part of Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Momentary will be located in a 63,000-square-foot former Kraft Foods cheese plant some one-and-a-half miles south of the Museum. Site work is currently slated to start in late 2018, with an official opening expected for early 2020. 

The Chicago-based firm Wheeler Kearns Architects is tasked with the design for the Momentary, which is intended as a space for the visual and performing arts, and for housing the museum’s artist-in-residency program. 

The Momentary is poised to be an international destination that demonstrates how contemporary American art and artists intersect with daily life around the globe,” Bertels said in a statement. “The Momentary will push boundaries of creativity, blur urban and rural lines, and provide access to arts-based experiences in a comfortable and well-designed social space. This is a truly exciting project not just for the region but for arts communities at large.
