“Worth the time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

When I was there they had the Robert Indiana exhibit in, it just didn't grab me. However the rest of the gallery was tremendous. If you are in the area, you should go. There is enough to keep pulling you along to each piece. Really though the star is the architecture of the buildings. Although the building seems a little inaccessible, once inside the flow and feeling is exceptional. Great marriage of old and new as well.

“Film Series”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

I go to the Film Series in the fall...the movies are excellent independent films that usually aren't big name or big screen productions. They are fantastic showings and the venue is fantastic with the stadium seating. I would recommend this for a date night!

“A Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

This is the most wonderful art museum in Central New York. They have a great film series, art after hours, Friday socials in the spring, etc. The gift shop is first class and I have taken classes there and the instructors are first rate!
