WKA selected by the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art to convert a former Kraft cheese plant into a space for Contemporary Art

We are honored to have been selected for what will be a transformational project for Bentonville, Arkansas, and the region. The project will involve the adaptive reuse of a decommissioned Kraft Foods plant, located approximately 1.5 miles south of Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. Plans for the project include transforming it into a vibrant facility that will house innovative visual art exhibition space, performance venues for music, film, and theatre, as well as a multi-disciplinary artists-in-residence program to be housed within the former factory building from the 1940’s. The adaptive facility will anchor what is envisioned to be downtown Bentonville’s Market District, bringing together a diverse range of artists to experiment, create, and connect with one another and the community.
