  • Check the shows first. Often, they are first rate. Easy parking and access. Surprising events have been held here. If you have not been, you really should go at least once to check it out.

  • 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.
