Here's a great preview of our fall exhibitions! Opening Reception tonight from 7–9pm. 
Sadly, we will not be able to have Chiharu Shiota's installation available for viewing tonight because we are working to resolve concerns with the building code.

I have not physically visited this museum space, but their Google + online gallery left me in awe. Their installation art is extremely interesting and provocative and is fun like a science museum can be with many interactive pieces. If I ever manage to get to Pittsburgh, PA, they will be one first on my list of important places to explore.

Very eclectic art collection (installation pieces). Not for everyone, but I have seen really interesting work here.

Some very interesting art. The top floor was the coolest.

It's installation art, something I hadn't really heard of before coming here. Basically it uses commonplace things arranged in interesting ways. Art is completely subjective of course, but in some cases, it felt like the artists were trying really hard to legitimize things that weren't honestly that special and other exhibits seemed more toward the carnival attraction type. Overall, it's a decent vibe, but if you're looking for high art, even of the modern art variety, then I'd recommend skipping this place.

I've seen some exhibits that weren't terrific, but I've never seen anything bad here, and I've seen a few bits of awesome; this is absolutely worth a stop.
