About OZ Art NWA

Griffin Loop’s “Paper Airplane” 2019

It’s So Nice To Meet You

Founded in 2017 in the hometown of Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art and the Momentary, OZ Art NWA elevates the regional arts scene by amplifying the work of local arts organizations and sharing a growing Collection on view in surprising public places throughout Bentonville and beyond.

The Collection includes more than 400 works spanning a variety of media and forms, including murals, outdoor installations, sculptures, paintings, and drawings, that celebrate contemporary voices speaking to issues such as diversity, gender equality, and racial equity.

Exploration is a way of life in Bentonville and Northwest Arkansas. OZ Art NWA advances the experience by incorporating beautiful and inspiring art into everyday life across the region, and celebrating the diversity of art around us.

The Collection

Imagine being in a coffee shop paying for your morning latte and you spot an original and authentic piece of art behind the bar. Or you’re riding your bike down Central Avenue and you see a massive neon installation on the side of the road. You’ll experience that in real life in Bentonville because of The Collection.
