Nice sampling of modern artists. Great for a quick visit as it's quite small. Enjoyed the ambiance and lack of crowds that you may find at other museums around town

I stumbled on this treasure by lucky accident. I had never heard of it. Now it is one of my favourites in the whole world. That says a lot, as I have lived for years in places like Paris and Madrid.
The collection is amazing and displayed in a beautiful setting. We were able to see a special exhibit on landscapes which was truly amazing with art by Monet, Jan Brueghel, Manet, Thomas Moran, and Thomas Hart Benton. Fabulous and well worth seeing.

I know what I like and I liked the Boating Party by Renoir. I also appreciated Lake Light by April Gornic. The installation room with walls and ceiling coated with 400 pounds of beeswax was sniffily reminiscent of beeswax candles.
