Honestly, I just went for the building, and the building alone is worth a visit. Although it is somewhat squished between the railroad tracks and two major roads, this building is fascinating, from the inside as well as from the outside. But inside, the big surprise (I had just returned from NYC, so I was a bit spoiled): Six exhibits and some nice pieces from the collection. The most stunning exhibit for me was Ed Burtynsky, Oil, an exhibit that has toured half of the world (Canada, Berlin, Stockholm, etc.), with very strong, large scale photographs, graphic style that abstracts much of the emotion that could be in the pictures. Than the Faberge collection of the Hodges Family, a great collection of many wonderful and really artistic creations; everybody who likes the more applied arts should see that. Harold Little's pictures of the various Virginian Landscapes were inspiring, Unusual Folk Art was touching, and Anne Ferrer's Hot Pink inflated sculture is a wonderful peace of French Art that fits right into the Museum Atrium. Everything is very well kept, the brochures are informative, and despite of the many exhibits, there is enough open space to relax from all the impressions. Excellent. Wish them many visitors, they really deserve it!
