Terrific collection of local art. Very eclectic media and informative artists. Well, worth finding when you get to where 18 should be on State Circle just look around. We hear that they change the exhibits often. We will go back next time.

Not all the tourists find this one, just off State Capitol circle, see a new selection each month of local artists. Some great so with a quick stop. Then head downhill to the pottery store.
