The Taubman Museum of Art in Roanoke

imageNot as small as one may expect,  the Taubman Museum of Art has a new building, as modern as any, with an open design and lots of light.  The work on display is also progressive.  There was a show up of photographs from the 1963-65 Civil Rights era in Alabama and Mississippi and an interactive work by Yoko Ono about peace.  They have a good collection of outsider art prominently displayed and an exhibition of works from the permanent collection. One of those is The Cotton Picker by Thomas Hart Benton. Roanoke is a city with a lively downtown area but it is manageably small.
