Fisk University’s Alfred Stieglitz Collection, one of Nashville’s most iconic cultural treasures and the subject of much litigation, has officially opened at the Crystal Bridges Museum in northwest Arkansas, The Tennessean reports. It took seven years to resolve how and under what terms the museum would have access to the collection, which includes key works by Georgia O'Keeffe. Under the terms of the final deal, Crystal Bridges agreed to a 50 percent sharing arrangement that will rotate the collection between the two institutions every two years. The art will return to Nashville in time for the historically black university’s 150th anniversary celebration in 2016.
