I was there today and I have to say I'm absolutely blown away by this little treasure trove! I spent 4 hours there and I couldn't get enough of it! I usually dislike "art museums" where the art is hung on the wall or set up on a pedestal to be admired at a distance. But Kirkland is different: to me, it's less like a museum and more like entering an artist's home where each piece was lovingly and painstakingly selected. I'm not just observing art from a distance: I'm completely immersed in it at Kirkland.
I also appreciate all the pieces that were displayed, and I'd love to see what else is in "the vault" sometime! I'm not usually an art connoisseur but I love how beautiful AND functional each piece were! And Vance Kirkland has definitely just become my favorite artist! So much dedication to his art, so much creativity, and so much passion!
I cannot say enough about this museum! For $8 this is the jackpot of art museums!
