  • A good museum for contemporary art. It's big but with a lot of hopeful empty space. It didn't take me that long to finish the displays. The art is beautiful but it needs bigger names to generate more appeal to the masses. Maybe they should reduce the $14 admission fee or just make it a free entry museum. Their gift shop is nice, go check it out. There's a cafeteria but it was closed the day I was there. It's better to get there on public transportation than to hunt for parking spaces. Have a meal after the visit at one of the many nice restaurants nearby.
  • @bampfa was a great study visit! I went to Berkley, CA to check out what is going on here. The first thing I really appreciated was the architecture of the building and the space itself- the building has a huge outdoor display where movies are stream, you can find a huge romance stairs at the entrance lobby and except of the beautiful galleries you can visit several workshop rooms and library for further activities or reflection. The space of stairs is used also as an art wall, so it changes its “facade” quite often. Unfortunately the cozy cafe on the top of the building was closed, but I am sure it’s cherry on the top with its special view. You can also support the museum in their great gift shop with local crafts and books. #universitymuseum #bampfa #berkley #audienceengagement You can read more about it at instagram account: @universitygalleries
