This museum is open to the public at no cost. Great contemporary artist showings. The permanement collection is small on display, but has some very impressive items. The ambience is wonderful. And the price is right.

Saw the Dubuffet exhibit-wow. This museum has great exhibits in Westwood. It's free and always has a couple of great exhibits at the same time. In the summer it has music in the courtyard.
