Housed in a postmodern building shaped like a slice of pie, this museum is now attracting big-name temporary shows thanks to its well-connected new director, Irvin Lippman, who's spent time at the National Gallery in D.C. Until March 2010, it's home to the "With You I Want to Live" an eclectic exhibit of art from the 1960s and 1970s; the King Tut exhibit was on view in 2006, and it was one of only two North American pit stops for the 2004 Princess Diana dress exhibit. The permanent collection is heavy on Pop Art (plenty of Warhol) as well as the Abstract Expressionist CoBrA movement, with artists like Asger Jorn and Karel Appel known for their intensely colored canvases.
