In town for a rock concert, I wanted to check out the art museum. It has an impressive original building with an unimpressive collection of works on view. With the exception of a Matisse, most of the works displayed (one each of O'Keefe, Magritte, Ensor,...More

My brother loved it. He is a fan of abstract, modern and contemporary art. I would have appreciated a bit more signage explaining pieces (some only had tags stating the artist and medium).

Despite renovations that were in progress, closing some rooms, there was more than enough to see in the other areas of the museum. Modern art abounds.

First, there are only a very few Masters works. The gift shop has interest offerings. End of positives. True, I am not a fan of "Modern Art". This museum has lots of it. A huge pile of junk metal pieces (pots, pans and such) with...More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit here, having driven over from Canada for the day. The names jump out at you: Van Gogh, Cézanne, Pissarro, Manet, Millet, Courbet, Pollock, Warhol, Lichtenstein - the list is endless. Nevertheless, the gallery takes great pride in promoting the work...More
