I saw the Body Beautiful, Ancient Greece exhibit on loan from the British Museum in London. It was worth the trip.

Appears to try had to be a sophisticated art gallery but fails. Rather expensive considering the relatively low quality of many of the older works. There were some good contemporary exhibits but what I found to be astonishing, and a bitter disappointment to an international visitor, was the complete absence of any form of Amerind art - old or modern.

If you're interested in the art from the original Americans, the Indians, this is a very spectacular place to visit. The collections is huge and gives a good overview of the rich culture, that were in this country before.

My only complaint is they have more quality art than they have space to hang it. The early American and Modern/Abstract Expressionist/Pop collections are the most impressive. It's well worth the visit.

We had a great time at the PAM for the Rothko exhibit. My family loved the collection - from the classics to contemporary!
