At this museum atop Mount Tantalus, six galleries feature changing exhibitions by renowned local, national and international artists. A separate pavilion houses a permanent installation of David Hockney's striking sets for the Ravel opera L'enfant et les Sortileges. The tranquil outdoor sculpture garden has permanent exhibitions of works by Robert Arneson, George Rickey, Viola Frey, and Arnold Zimmerman, among others. The estate is set in a peaceful botanical garden; a map of the garden is available. There is a cafe adjacent to the garden; museum admission is not required for access. There's also a gift shop featuring unusual contemporary gift items. Museum programs include childrens' workshops on the first Saturday of each month and exhibition workshops scheduled with each exhibit. Docent-led tours are available daily. On the third Thursday of each month the museum is free to enter, thanks to corporate sponsorship.
