We've seen a few different exhibits here. They are always interesting and challenge your thinking about the definition of art in the current times. Good way to spend an hour. This is part of a group of small, local museums that offer free entry with...More

Innovative and thought provoking exhibits around the interior and exterior spaces from international and domestic artists. An ever changing display of work is an adventure and a challenge to "Look- Look Again"
