State of the Art celebrates the quality and diversity of contemporary art created throughout the United States, both in major art centers and smaller cities and communities across the country. The curatorial team from Crystal Bridges Museum selected over one hundred artists working in mediums ranging from paint and canvas to video, many of whom were relatively unknown beyond their regions.

This exhibition was organized by the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art.
