Winter a Busy Time for Museum

Posted: February 9, 2013 at 5 a.m.

William Aguilar, from right, Fernando Silza, Josh Erickson and Brian Batchelor work Friday to cut bluestem grass in one of the gardens outside the south entrance to Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville. The men work for Crystal Bridges’ trail and ground staff that maintains the gardens and trails around the museum.

A stillness settles over the grounds of the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in winter as fallen leaves muffle footsteps and naked trees await spring.
