Large collection with an emphasis on Western and Native American art, but also has gorgeous furniture and decorative arts in a home-like setting, modern glassware and even a smattering of older European and world art. All this for free on the campus of the state...More
An interesting mix of ethnic and contemporary art. The stars are the paintings from the 1948 aborted American art show that was to travel the world and was brought down by political hysteria.
