This a wonderful must see museum. The Chihuly chandelier was beautiful. The ceramics by Walt Andersen and his story was. Interesting. A must see.

Visited during a business reception. Nice, but perhaps too modern for my taste. I had trouble finding a theme as well. An exhibit of photographs from Mississippi coupled with poetry by the photographer was interesting however.

A very attractive small university museum- some pieces from permanent collection out and then usually a traveling show. From time to time they show American self taught art- so strong in the south. I remember a memorable Howard Finster show here several,years back. Worth a...More

The chandelier made my heart sing, and recently I saw a couple of more by the same artist in Colorado Springs. I enjoyed all the art, but the sculpture made of shoes comes into my mind all the time. Crazy
