Our innkeepers suggested we go. We did the walking tour of Easton and stopped here along the way. For $3 per person we were delighted by the installation by Ahn. Amazing visual stimulation. Love it!

The Academy of the Arts is wonderful place to spend some time. The exhibits are interesting, admission nominal. The docents are most helpful. Highly recommend.

This was a fabulous exhibit, usually seen only in New York. It is all done with lights and mirrors. The pictures are three dimensional and appear from different perspectives as you move your viewing position. It is hard to describe and fascinating. The Academy of Art is well run and always interesting, well worth a visit when in Easton.
