Don't miss this museum. The contemporary art on show is cutting-edge and well worth a visit. It's small and usually houses their own collection and temporary shows.

I saw the Rashid Johnson exhibit and spent time looking at other works of art. I noticed the art sparked questions, comments and conversation. This is what I enjoy about contempory art. It is not necessarity straight forward and very much up to interpretation.

We found easy (free) parking right by the rear doors. The lot was still open when we left.
