  • The art work is notable, with people that even the most un-arty would recognize and appreciate. On Tuesday mornings at 10:30 there is a story time followed with a craft, usually related to the days theme. The staff are welcoming of children. With a scavenger hunt given to help them explore the exhibit. It is a wonderful experience, even if you only stop by once. Enjoy!
  • After our guided tour of the campus, we decided to go into the art museum. Admission is free and though the space is relatively small, they had some very nice pieces. Not only European impressionism pieces, but great glass work from around the globe. One collection on display had the room furnishings and setup as well as the art works - as if you were visiting the house of the donor. The gift shop had some lovely things to buy - exhibition catalogs, reproduction pieces and jewelry. The building itself is aesthetically pleasing as well.
