It has interesting art on display but parking can be an issue.

My wife and I enjoyed the art museum and the entire Art Block. Frida Kahlo exhibit of photographs and correspondence was very revealing and interesting. We especially enjoyed the Western Art Wing and the most knowledgeble attendent present on that day. Very nice Museum shop with other hand crafted items available in various shops. Food and drink also available.

We particularly liked the Nicholas Muray photographs of Frida Kahlo, but there were some very nice Chinese pieces on display and a lot of good Mexican folk art. The shop is nice as is the museum's restaurant.

Folks, this just isn't New York! Static collection IMHO second rate, at best. This neck of the woods is just not too big on (good) art.

Best local Artisian Art Festival we've ever been to! We went with family and found wonderful one of a kind art work of ever kind plus more. Had a great time talking to the local artists who were very friendly. Most items were reasonably priced. The courtyard held the vendors and the shade was a welcome blessing as the temps were around 80. We will be back for future shows!
