BENTONVILLE, Ark. (TB&P)—Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville launched an artwork into space via a weather balloon at a public Art in Space event Jan. 20 as a celebration of art, space and the upcoming exhibition Men of Steel, Women of Wonder.

Crystal Bridges Launches Art Into Space To Promote ‘Men Of Steel, Women Of Wonder’ Exhibition

The inspiration to launch artwork into space came from the museum’s upcoming temporary exhibition, Men of Steel, Women of Wonder, which examines art-world responses to Superman and Wonder Woman. The exhibition was developed at Crystal Bridges by Assistant Curator Alejo Benedetti and features over 70 paintings, photographs, installations, videos, and more by over 50 artists. Men of Steel, Women of Wonder will open to the public on Feb. 9. Tickets are $12 or free for members and youth ages 18 and younger.
