  • The museum was great overall. But I must say in the process of doing my civic duty and picking up some recyclable goods outside some hoodlums had left I was yelled at by the curator. Turns out what I was cleaning up was intended to be art. Either modern art has become an inside joke or maybe the "curator" was just one of the many homeless / schizophrenic population that hangs out here .
  • Lovely little museum with ever-changing exhibitions of more-modern-era art forms, mostly from California artists, and mostly paintings. The front room functions as a gallery for regional artists’ pieces.
