  • At first glance, it was just a few sculptures under a bridge, placed there through some well-intentioned yet ineffective city arts initiative. I walked past it many times without noticing it. However, my perspective changed when I was taken there by a local guide and art historian who could explain the museum as a whole and more about the individual pieces. More pieces are part of the museum than what meets the eye. I highly recommend it with the caveat that not everyone will get it and not everyone will enjoy it.
