You might picture Bentonville, set in northwest Arkansas at the foot of the Ozarks, as a Mayberry-like place wrapped in a grand expanse of outdoor pleasures from fly fishing to mountain biking. Or you might think of Bentonville as Walmart Country; this, after all, is where the retail behemoth was born. What you might not imagine is that Bentonville is a major art mecca. Yet all of the above images are right on target – the newsiest being the art part.
