  • I love it! It’s small but it has great exhibitions and the building and it’s courtyard are amazing. I really appreciate that they really care about audience engagement, there were several stations with activities connected to the exhibitions as well as descriptions of several used art techniques.
  • This is a great little museum with a nice variety of work on display. Seeing a landscape by Georgia OKeefe and new Ansel Adams acquisitions was a pleasant surprise. The architecture of the building is fantastic and the artwork fits so well with it. Definitely check out both levels and outdoor spaces.
