Worth the trip just to wander around and just enjoy the art. Go early to avoid the crowds. Outdoor art that defines what art should be: expressive, challenging, unique. Art lovers will take in what's really a world-class exhibit!

It is worth getting some great pics in this Plaza. Just be cautious going in the daytime hours, large crowds and take any precautions you normally would for crimes in a large city. It can be difficult to get pics, especially the day we were there which was a Thursday afternoon. It is best described as a rarity and can't... More
