Most Art Museums have a few shows and they are often uneven in quality. You might enjoy one exhibit and find the others worth skipping. We found that they had four shows on at once and they were all outstanding.

Enjoyed my afternoon visit to the Art museum. It is a large, bright, beautiful facility. It is nicely organized. I found the exhibit by Leon Borensztein titled "Sharon" and Robert Williams': "SLANG Aesthetics!" especially interesting.

An ever changing set of exhibits that include glass sculpture, American prints and edgy contemporary artists. Location is central to downtown Fort Wayne and a good place to start your visit or day of relaxation. Lovely gift shop.
