I am a huge fan of the museum although I don't tend to go as often as I probably should considering I can get in with my school ID. Either way, I do get in there often enough to know my way around for the most part.
salvbard wanted specifically to get to visit the new wing so we started there. I was actually pretty disappointed by the very limited amount of indiginous art there. It was heavily euro-centric even more than I thought it would be.
Chiquita and I had some really good art discussion on the "modern" art floor of the American wing though. And she was very taken by the flower pieces by Georgia O'Keefe, not just by the subject matter but also how they were done.
My favorite exhibit was one I wasn't aware of, we just stumbled across it. It was called Fresh Ink, and it was a collection of mostly Chinese-born (and one first generation Chinese American) artists whose works take a fresh look using traditional styles and techniques as a starting place.
