    Get lost in this installation-only museum filled w/ works by artists in residence from around the world. The permanent collection highlights artists like James Turrell alongside rotating exhibitions.

    visit after mid-september '13, they're switching a lot of the exhibits right now. even though we got in for half the cost, we only got to see half the art! can't wait to return and see it all.

    Boasting "Art you can get into" all are installations taking up major space. Unique and funky, come in the morning and grab a bite at the Boxspring Cafe on the way out.

    Give James Turrell's Pleiades all the time that your eyes need to adjust. You won't be disappointed. And don't forget to grab a snack in the cafe either.

    Easily one of the coolest museums I've been to. Great venue for events as well! Nice rotation of exhibitions keeps things interesting.

    The layout is confusing. I thought I'd be respectful and take the stair to go down two sets and learn I had to use the elevator.

    Experience art you can get into — room-sized environments, created by in-residence artists. Check out the site for current exhibitions @ www.mattress.org

    Take enough time to enjoy the exhibits on the 2nd floor. The one really takes you places in your mind =]

    Be sure to visit the Annex if it's open. Enter the main building by walking up Sampsonia and check out the Poem House!
