Really spend a few hours just gazing at the creativity its well worth some charitable dollars to amble through and do some wondering. Some are more to my liking than others but overall a very nice collective of art connoisseurs.

Absolutely... it's in heart of UW Campus. There are several places across University Ave, or you can walk a couple of blocks over to State St.
