I recently visited the Rose Art Museum after having lunch at the nearby Brandeis faculty club. The current exhibition shows some of the works that the Rose acquired when it first opened. The original curator made some excellent choices and the paintings are now worth a small fortune.
One of the people in our group of 10 had arranged for a docent (a Brandeis art student) to show us around. She tried to get our opinions/feelings for some of the art works and gave us a little background on the artists.
I don't happen to understand or appreciate modern art, so many of the items left me cold. However, it is a great place to spend an hour or so in the Waltham area.
