  • worth checking out if you are on campus. saw an exhibit on a western artist last summer (can't remember his name) that was very well done. "the bible" is there
  • While I was there they they had a comprehensive showcase on Frank Reaugh that was organized very well. They also had a Gutenberg Bible on display which I found compelling. To my surprise with little advertising, off to the side they had the first photograph ever taken which I enjoyed very much.
  • It looks like it would be great but it's closed until Aug 15th. We will have to come back.
  • A great place for undirected browsing and learning
  • Every exhibit here brings me to a different time in history. They usually blend art, writing, and time in a most interesting way.
