I was disappointed as I was expecting a museum filled with oil paintings with fancy frames, some well known artist names, etc. - but I didn't find that. In a museum, when I see a piece of art I believe is interesting, I will look at it and recognize the talent of the artist and wonder how they did that. If one cannot figure out how something was created or it is just amazingly beautiful, one can leave the museum feeling satisfied. In the case of the items viewed both in and out of the museum, these thoughts had little bearing. I could easily see how the 'art' was created; for a few examples, one artist had string/wire hanging from the ceiling to a point just off the floor and this was in a vertical line and consisted of a number of these strings; another piece adjacent to the strings was an old quilt with holes cut out of it; outside, one finds an exhibit of stacked newspapers. There is no wonder how these were created - similar to exhibits where artists hang an empty frame on the wall, or have a blank white stretched canvas, or one that is entirely painted one color. There is no wonder here as to how these were created - just amazement that someone has done this and it hangs in a museum. Granted, there were some interesting pieces in the museum as well as on the grounds. I preferred the outside grounds and it is pleasant walking there. For those seeking regular art (oil, watercolor, acryllic, etc) with impressionism, realism, cubist and all the other forms, this might not be the museum for you. For those interested in contemporary or items described above, this museum would be worthy to check out; again, the grounds are nice to walk around.
