The Museum had a special showing from the Armand Hammer collection, all exceptional pieces. In addition there was a show of selected pieces from the permanent collection, equally good. The second floor has a wonderful collection of Asian art, similar in quality to the art in the Taipei, Taiwan Art Museum, but far more limited than the latter Museum. We were disappointed that many gallery spaces were closed for installation of a new show. Oh well, next time!
