“Wonderful Show”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

Awesome presentations and show for their anniversary show. The curators brought in some amazing work from many diverse audiences. The work around abstraction was very interesting.

“Remarkable stuff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

Free modern art museum or rather exhibition with changing exhibitions. Rather remarkable stuff. Definitely worth a regular visit when in the museum district.

“Modern art and quirky shop - irresistible”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

This a small, free modern art museum and joyous for that. Loved some pieces and hated others. Found some pieces that really intrigued and resonated with me and will go look up the artists. Great shop downstairs really worth a visit for the quirky, arty gifts all prices and children's toys. We really enjoyed our visit.

“Price is right”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Went to see the graphic design display. We were a little surprised at the display at how small it was. They also had a photography display downstairs. The price was free so I couldn't really complain. Parked a few blocks away and it was also free.
