Boring for those who don�t like Modern Art
By A Yahoo Contributor, 6/5/05
Modern art is just weird to me, and a lot of the collection was very strange and I just found it not very interesting. Abstract art just doesn�t make sense to me. For example the kid like paintings in one of the displays. They do have some Picasso�s though, which of course is cool. The atmosphere was nice and museumy though. If you like abstract modernist art then you�d probably enjoy it.
