Once inside the museum, we had to take a quick tour through some old favorites before checking out the new stuff. Truly, the new wing is a work of art itself. It is simple, modern and soothing with large wooden stairways with hand-carved details and a three-story wall of slim cables reminiscent of a waterfall. A short video we watched explained the architect's vision of tying in elements from the earth such as wood, sky, water and air. And it absolutely works! One of my favorite parts is the glass wall of pottery through which you can see classrooms in the art school. It is an important reminder of the true purpose of this wonderful university.
crazy-eyed mustang, it's a wonder there aren't more wrecks on Boyd!
