I was fortunate to have some "extra time" to stop and view the Diana Al-Hadid exhibit and got lost in her pieces. Just wonderful to experience on so many levels.

I go several times of year to this Church St. fixture for modern art. I greatly enjoy their eclecticism and constantly changing exhibits. Their recent beach installation was very entertaining.

Lovely little stopping place to stroll through on your way to the park or restaurants downtown. Worth the visit.
