A fairly new museum which is housed in a gorgeous contemporary building with beautiful exhibition spaces. There are rotating exhibitions featuring first class artists and well curated shows. Definitely worth a visit.

Toured the gallery during the Alyson Shotz exhibition. Her work was brilliantly curated! The design of the museum is world class.

Big investment for very few exhibits. Student senior show in May 2013 was the best exhibit since the museum opened. Money should have been saved to keep tuition down.
