I was completely blown away by this exhibit. The photographs were colorful, and beautiful. Both floors were open to the public. The host were friendly and you are allowed to photograph. It was the highlight of my day.

It's not that large but it was a nice exhibit spread over 2 floors. I was one of the only people here so I wandered through at my own pace.

Yesterday I attended a great street photography workshop at this museum and was very impressed with the teacher, the museum, their current exhibit and how professional the staff was. I recommend checking it out.

We saw this location and were interested with the outside art. There are other offices in the building so you need to enter from the north side. The museum is on the second floor. I found the history and stories of the southern musicians very...More
