  1. I went to see the show last night. Great quality of work. It really makes a difference to be surround by work that is museum quality,
    I loved Grimanesa Amoros installation. The circles were really interesting and when the sunset and the video appeared it was a wow! GRIMANESA Amoros consistently challangers herself and art lovers like myself feed and enjoy the experience.
