The museum is going under renovations. Even with small exhibit space, it is a nice place to visit while in town. Check out their "Art After Dark" series - free admission, cash bar & art . I'll be checking out after renovations are complete.

I took my nephew and I had never been to an art museum and I really enjoyed this. Especially the Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney sculpture display. A big renovation is underway and it will be beautiful when complete. Makes me want to grow more culturally!
