Unexpected find in the civic cultural area. Unique collection of Soleri's works-sketch books, models, drawings, posters. Australian artwork also quite fascinating.

We’ve been to this museum twice now. We’ve enjoyed their exhibits and I love that they have free admission after 5:00 on Friday and Saturday. So it’s convenient if you attending a show at the Center for the performing arts.

I had looked forward to visiting this museum but was disappointed to find such a small venue with no permanent collection display. The two exhibitions were appallingly poor in terms of curation. I will steer well clear of this place in future.

I was expecting more than just two exhibits, although they were both fabulous: Cosanti (Pablo Solari) and a Native Australian crafts exhibit, which was stunning.

For a small museum it was wonderful and everything I could have hoped for. There's a lights display near the entrance that everyone enjoyed, you walk right though and the lights interact with you and never do the same sequence. It was truly beautiful. If...More

Came here as a requirement for an art class. I came afternoon/evening on saturday night so the area was packed with people. Exhibits were very neat to look at. There is plenty to see. Probably spent an hour looking at everything closely.
