  • Most of the museum was closed for reconstruction but the two open exhibits were amazing. One showed 1000 year old pottery and gave excellent explanations on their geometric designs. The other displayed fascinating new glass art by indigenous peoples not only from the southwest and Pacific northwest but also New Zealand and Australia.
  • An amazing collection of work done by contemporary artists is tucked away in this place. I got to see a culture that is alive, creative, critical, and positive. Must see if you are in town!
