The first time I visited the MAD, I felt like I was wandering the exhibits a bit cluelessly. THIS time I knew just what I was looking for, and would be looking at -- a long-awaited and previously-researched show of works by Miriam Schapiro. Serendipitously,...More

We enjoyed visiting this museum. We were, however, not prepared for the range of exhibits we encountered. Some of them were unusual. The layout of this museum is unique: you go up to the 6th floor and see those exhibits, then go to the 5th...More

This is a jewel of a museum. The curators always pick interesting and unusual objects to display and often install them in really creative ways with different colors of walls and murals. The definition of art here is broader than most museums. Forget the frames,...More
