Thanks to a tip-off from Lilian, we secured free tickets to the pre-opening weekend. Thoroughly enjoyed Taryn Simon’s exhibition and appreciated anecdotes (sometimes painfully honest) from the people who had toiled on the construction of the spectacular building.

The Frank Gehry-designed building itself generated most of the buzz long before the museum was scheduled to open and I think it most appropriate that this commission pays tribute to the nameless men and women who had helped make the building a reality. A must-see even for contemporary art skeptics.
