BENTONVILLE, Ark. (AP) — After years of legal wrangling, a renowned art collection including pieces by the famous painter Georgia O'Keeffe and her late husband, Alfred Stieglitz, will make its debut at a museum in northwest Arkansas. O'Keeffe gave the collection to Fisk University in Tennessee in 1949. Last year, a Tennessee judge approved a deal for Fisk to sell a 50 percent stake in the collection to the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art created by Wal-Mart heiress Alice Walton. The school received $30 million as part of the deal. Tennessee's attorney general had argued that selling any part of the 101-piece collection would violate O'Keeffe's wishes. An exhibition featuring the collection opens to the public on Saturday in Bentonville, Ark. It will be on display through Feb. 3.
