NWA Media/JASON IVESTER --11-07-13-- Fisk University President H. James Williams and Chair of the Board of Trustees Barbara Bowles look over a Georgia O'Keefe painting on Thursday, Nov. 7, 2013, inside the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville.

BENTONVILLE — When Victor Simmons first saw the Stieglitz Collection on display Thursday at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, he said he felt like he was watching a child go off to college.

It is truly unfortunate that the Stieglitz Collection will only be shown for three months out of the two years it will be at crystal bridges. That is not in keeping with the donor's intent and is unfortunate for those of us who are unwilling or unable to travel to the remote location of the Museum during the winter months with its unpredictable weather patterns and during the biggest family holidays of the year. I really wish it were possible for it to be displayed in its entirety, and for a longer time period, as befits it's stature, as a collection, in the art world.
