  • Wonderful exhibit: Retuning the Gaze by Jordan Casteel. Her take on the Black man was a point of view needed that I could readily relate to. Great images.  more »
  • Price of admission varies from what was on the website. Neat place to visit. I am sure the renovations they are doing will make it even better. Parking seems to be a little confusing.  more »

  • Spend the $28 for the exhibit that is currently going on. We went to the Dior exhibit and it was extremely well worth it. It had an audio experience as well as a highly visual one. The main art museum may seem small but it is currently going through a renovation that is slated for 2020. The staff is super friendly and welcoming. Their social media is very up to date and informative and they are super knowledgeable about the pieces that they have. Great date night!!!
  • Nice exhibits, though limited to 3-4 in the entire museum. This may be due to extensive renovations. $13 entrance was reasonable for the offering. Overall valuable experience. Note: to use the lockers you need $.25, which will be refunded. The lockers are mostly too small for a normal sized backpacks.
