I arrived early as the museum was opening and had the privilege of joining Art, a guide on staff, to tour the Western art rooms. Art was gracious in sharing his knowledge as we moved from room to room ... providing background and historical perspectives that helped to frame the progression of the works from 17th century Europe to contemporary Modernism.
I later toured the Indian, Chinese and SE Asia rooms on my own, then found the Tony Oursler video projection art to be very intriguing. In all, a 4 hour sensory treat ... where I could be out of the sun and immersed in the cool, rich surroundings that make up this beautiful gem.
