  • I have enjoyed the variety of exhibits over the years and the helpfulness of the staff. They also provide free high quality booklets that give a detail view of the current items in the exhibit.

  • This place is seriously amazing. A modern, minimal space with friendly staff and interesting exhibits. The gallery attendants are friendly; from my experience they love to talk about the art if you ask them. The Pulitzer Arts Foundation offers a unique gallery viewing experience: there are no nameplates or information about the artwork. This allows you to view and experience the works on a more personal, exploratory level. When you're ready, you can check the small booklet + map for info about each piece in the exhibit. It really is special. Don't miss: 1. The permanent Richard Serra sculpture in the courtyard next to the museum. 2. The courtyard with the long pool of water. Serene!
  • The Pulitzer is a beautiful place for art lovers. Not only is it free, but they show some of the best artists around the world, while doing a spectacular job with their publication of each show.
  • A true sanctuary. Tadao Ando's 1st free standing bldg in the US. A must visit for the art, the architecture, or to simply clear your mind momentarily.
