Compared with some of the larger galleries like MOMA and the Met, the collections ar rather small and don’t take long to tour. I thought more forms of crafts would be represented but clearly this is a newer gallery

Fifth & Fourth floors are occupied by something called Surface Depth: The Decorative after Miriam Shapiro. I went looking for art, I found political activism. Could not find any beauty or redeeming value. But it's just me. You might like it. Going down, third floor...More
