Enjoyed the Found Objects exhibit, especially "Ten things that were run over" and liked the self taught artist exhibit. Bill Traylor's vivid animals were interesting, and the bios of all the self taught artists were inspiring.

We didn't realize they would have such a variety of art. We saw some great folk art on this trip. I loved the memory boxes - busted voices and sound coming form wooden boxes - how many times have you wanted to save a sound or someone's voice forever - nostalgia in a box. Perfect! A must see every time... More

Interesting exhibits for a small university art gallery. We were blown away by Tom Burckhardt's exhibit called "Full Stop" which replicated an art studio in New York all made out of cardboard, black paint, wood and hot glue. It was amazing! aw
