You pay $14 each to get in, and there are a series of sculptures and "art installations" (be advised that "art installation" has no good definition!) along with some "paintings outside the stretcher" which look to me like pompous, self-indulgent, and ill-conceived junk which any child could do better. Or even me!
I had a great deal of fun making up my own titles for many works, along with fanciful explanations of what they "represented". I mean, is seeing a tipped-over ATV really "art" in any valid sense of the word? Or a 1936 Chrysler spray painted silver? Big Deal!
Candidly, I think 99% of so-called modern "art" is unworthy of the same name that is used for masterworks by Rembrandt, Picasso, DaVinci, and other true Masters of the art world. And this place does nothing to change that perception.
Even if you are in the area, there is no good reason to come here.
The Best Thing Here: The gift shop, where many of the items for sale show a great deal more artistic integrity - and basic good taste - than the garbage on display in the museum.
