We recently went to the festival of art and while we were here, we went in the Coastal Art Center. A very nice renovation of the house with some interesting art work. This house just topped off a great day at the festival.

I think it's appointment only, but the schedule seemed pretty open when we went. Be sure to dedicate the right amount of time to your schedule. The glass process takes a while, buts it's so cool and worth it!
