  • Wonderful exhibits and atmosphere. Docents are very knowledgeable. Best thing..admission is,free! Great stuff from local artists,as well.
  • This museum is such a treasure that we locals take for granted,- or shall I say this particular one has. The permanent collection is incredibly deep but/and there are always new installations of contemporary work that need to be seen. Right now there are 2 new exhibits that just knock my socks off. One an archive of 2700 plus photos and graphics from African-American publications from 50’s and 60’s. The other is the work of a South African (trans?) woman photographer. The photos are all self portraits with fabulous variations in adornment referencing traditional African culture.
