Nice museum, Really enjoyed the exhibits. The multiple collections of NY artist are fascinating. The university must provide better access to parking for visitors. The cafe serves a lovely lunch so a stay could easily be two to three hours.

The museum is situated out on the University campus, so you need a car to get there (I was on foot). When I went, the whole space was dedicated to an exhibition of Rick Barstow's work. It is beautifully set out, and the half hour...More
