We went for the Micro Dwell exhibit 2015. We really enjoyed that particular exhibit and found it interesting. We did catch some of the sculptures they had in the garden at the entrance but apart from those and the MicroDwell exhibit we didn't really see much other art. The museum itself was really small. It was easy to get to... More

I recently took a metal and enamel class here with Larry as the instructor. The class was great, as well as the instruction. The grounds and historic home are beautifully located at the foot of nearby mountain ranges. I would recommend a class or at least a visit to anyone interested in the arts.
