The interior of the museum is comprised of two floor of exhibits in maybe nine small rooms. The special exhibit on this visit occupied at least 80% of the space, devoted to Louis Comfort Tiffany. This artist is of course most famous for his glass work, the painted lamps and windows, but was also quite the painter. Most of the paintings reflect his trip to the Eastern and Southern Mediterrean areas, covering Italy to Egypt. Several examples are included.

The somewhat grandiose sounding " Contemporary Wing " is actually comprised of one small room featuring five sculptures by Nathan Sawaya, whose art expertise is creating figures of Lego blocks. In the foreground on image 4, Strength of Spirit, and in the background Pushing Against.
