Visiting the Triton Museum of Art

Entrance of the Triton Museum of Art

I recently reported on the plein-air painting exhibition
"A Brush With Nature" at the Triton Museum of Art in Santa Clara.

The Triton Museum of Art is a very minimalist space, with good lighting conditions. The building is simple and modern. It combines exhibition space with some studio space where workshops and art classes are ran on a regular basis. I like this idea of "living museum" where conservation and teaching spaces are hosted under the same roof.

The garden at the back of the museum showcases a collection of sculptures. You can seat there on benches and relax while enjoying the art. This is a good way to finish your visit.
