Really interesting art and artists. Check out the rest rooms (both sexes). Very unique even for a non-art person.

Fantastic contemporary art museum. Plenty to see and activities for kids. A lovely gift shop to boot! Good selection of things to take home with you. Great jewelry from artists from around the country. Well worth the trip.

This arts center has something for everyone: hands on art projects, art displays, music, and a wonderful little cafe! Have fun exploring this little gem (and be sure to check out the art in the bathrooms)!

Went for Mary Nohl exhibit. We expected that to be larger. Otherwise, quite a few exhibits. Free, but ask for $6 donation. Outside grounds are lovely.
