What a gem of an Art Gallery! I was there today to do a site inspection for an upcoming group tour and had heard a lot of positive comments about this gallery. I wasn't disappointed. They have a superlative collection of artwork. Currently, there's a Monet exhibit along with African Traditional costumes. I was also impressed with the Asian collection... More

The museum had several collections on display. A nice mix of paintings, sculptures and artifacts. We really enjoyed walking through and reading about the artists

Art is not my thing I guess. I love walking around the Natural History Museum more, but was there with my son and a group of kids. We had a guide which made it very boring. Would rather have walked around myself. The Asian wing is lovely and the garden is beautiful. Very well done.

The art museum has diversity. It is fabulous and free. (Donations accepted). Fee to park on weekdays. There is a cafe downstairs and a nice exhibit outside, with water and pond. We combined this with other things like outdoor walking paths. It was good. Hope to see more museums in the area.

I'm not much of an art fan, so I probably didn't appreciate this place as much as someone who knows art would, but I know that it's amazing enough because I was intrigued and impressed with the whole place. You can go on tours, and they have soooooo many art exhibits and different themed rooms, with TONS of artwork and... More

a small museum on the university grounds. It was a very pleasant surprise to see how lovely it is. The galleries are all on one ground level. Very interesting exhibits with changes monthly. I went in December and I am going once more in January while I am still in the area. The attached Cafe was nice for a break.... More

Current displays that change fairly often along with a strong permanent collection of local, international art...with a visit and a docent tour if you get a good docent

Great museum showing different artists. Well laid out. Visit the gift shop it is quite nice not crowded easy for everyone to walk around. Don't think small children would like it but it is excellent for adults

This place has a lot of great exhibits throughout the year. I enjoy coming here every time. Definitely a multi-use location for dates, friends, family, or simply to look and meditate.
