    Beautiful, congratulations. Exhibits have been great also, esp. Hassam. Permament modern art collection is in serious need of updating, however.

    Great news! I walked in the new part of the park Saturday, and this too is a beautiful addition. I agree with Comment 1 about modern American art, though.

    We are so proud of our NCMA and feel so lucky to have it so close by so we can visit it often. We love the Special Exhibitions.

    Beauty, as well as art and architectural appreciation, is in the eye of the beholder. My wife and I are proud to be members and love the museum but personally do not care at all for the aluminum-clad external walls , which, to us, appear industrial. The space is great from the interior and the art is fantastic. In any case, congrats.

    We've lived here just 11 years and feel very privileged to be members of such an outstanding art museum. Given the awful state of our legislature, it's really rather surprising to have such forward-looking, highly competent, well-informed people as those guiding NCMA.

    Well now it's out! Our secret world of magically being amongst ancient and contemporary artists enhanced by live music within its fine architecture used to be our secret. Since we discovered the delightful experience the museum offers upon entering its grounds, my husband and I have made Friday at NCMA a highlight of our week. Congratulations!

    You must be kidding me! The building looks like a nonedescript warehouse to me.

    I was the Chief Surveyor on the construction. Every single thing about this project, including the wooden floor, was extremely exacting and resulted in a magnificent facility. Every time our family goes, I get to consider what it took the team to get it to the point at which everyone could fully appreciate it, including the architect himself. Truly an honor to have had that intimate experience with this building.
