Fodor's Review

Housed in an aluminum-sheathed trapezoid, this non-collecting institution hosts traveling avant-garde art shows. Once recent exhibition was "Design Life Now: National Design Triennial," showcasing the experimental projects, emerging ideas, major buildings, and new media that were at the center of contemporary culture from 2003–06; firms represented in the show included Apple and Nike. The museum also throws "Steel Lounge," an evening get-together of music, drinks, and mingling masses, on the final Friday of every month.
