A strange, and surprisingly small museum that showcases the eclectic side of art in all of its various forms. Appropriately, the building, itself, is a work of art. A parallelogram coated in ribbed, stainless steel. Most visitors walk right past its front door hidden between two panels of steel reflecting with that day's sky. Though surrounded by larger, more impressive structures, the sharpened steel edges allow this building to exist on its own without making apologies to the environment around it. It chooses not to evoke the columns and ivy of its lateral surroundings, but rather merge with the sky above in a show that is mesmerizing at dusk and dawn, and painful in the full noon sun.
