  • We went to see the art exhibits at San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art. We were also lucky enough to meet with and talk with one of the artists. It is in the SOFA District of San Jose.  more »
  • You probably should look up current exhibits. Accessiblity is excellent, public or private transportation.  more »
  • Wonderful museum. They are small, so you don't feel overwhelmed by the number of exhibits. The staff is very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Definitely recommended!
  • Initially a quilt museum that now encompasses all forms of fiber art and presents world class shows. Truly a hidden gem in San Jose.
