  • This is a beautiful building. The architecture, the shadows cast inside when the sunshines through, the rooftop fireplace and bistro are all worth coming to see. Art is always subjective but there....  more »

  • I didn’t hate it. It did rob me of some precious minutes of my life, including the few I spend writing this, but hopefully this and other reviews that will undoubtedly be in the same vein will cause the artistic director to change her perspective some. The building itself is a work of art and beautiful. The sparse collection that inhabits the building only makes the building seem that much more aesthetically pleasing. The pieces we saw ranged from large mixed media works to small oils, all contemporary abstracts. Aside from a couple of works that exhibited incredible technique, the rest seemed unworthy to hang in a gallery. Go visit the commercial art galleries for incredible contemporary art. The best way to enjoy those is to tell the art dealer up front - “I am not interested in buying. I’m just looking.”
  • Ban's building is amazing and we always love a good gift shop. Make sure you go up to the third floor space. Collection is hit or miss.
