  • It was just okay. They had several pieces of artwork of the same few artists so I found it somewhat repetitious. They had two women artist and one was doing artwork was felt and the other one was doing artwork with thin acrylic or plastic sheets which created patterns with light. I thought both those artists were very interesting and I did like their work. Everybody should stop by and check it out. Most of the museums I have been in didn't feature particular artist that much and I think that might have been why I didn't like this one as well as some of the others.
  • For a free museum, it has very good art. Most of it is collections of art from the same artists. They cycle different artist through, however, so there is a decent variety.
