We wanted see this museum but chose a Saturday where it is right in the center of the weekly farmers market. Alot of traffic and people. We parked for free a few blocks at the library lot which is free on weekends. We had NARM...More

There was an Austrian artist named Mathias Kessler on display. There were very few pieces to look at.

This museum is located in a great spot next to central Boulder. Regular admission is only $1, but we visited on a Saturday when admission is free. It's a small museum with changing exhibits and incredible pieces on display from both local and foreign artists....More

A fun space, with changing exhibits. It's small, but worth dipping into when you're downtown walking around. Would be a great space for a modern party, a book launch, etc.

It probably depends very much on the current exhibition. The one we saw was hung haphazardly and without much energy to it. It only costs a dollar and places like this should be supported, just don't expect much..

We were so impressed with this fantastic community facility. All the more disappointing that the second floor - an amazing gallery and exhibition space - was empty. What a shame. We realize that not everyone likes or appreciates the same in art, so we expect...More

Maybe it's because I don't "get" contemporary art but I paid a dollar to go into an empty place. I'm a visual person but I could fathom the theme or what was going on. It might be fine with other people that are into that...More
