  • While it isn't a huge museum, it's an excellent place to check out if you're nearby. They also aren't afraid to take more political stances, and they proudly display a stunning textile featuring Trayvon Martin. If you can come here during First Friday, don't expect to find alcohol. However, you will find an excellent DJ set, a welcoming crowd, and artwork that will delight and surprise you.
  • We love all of their exhibit. It is so profound! So glad we came across this museum!
  • Regular changing exhibits never fail to delight and educate. We return every few months to see the works of amazing artists in this small but well curated museum. A delightful, little known San Jose treasure!
  • One of my regular stops on the first Friday art walk
  • It showed a great view of the textile world.
