I was fortunate to have some "extra time" to stop and view the Diana Al-Hadid exhibit and got lost in her pieces. Just wonderful to experience on so many levels.

Fine little gallery with avant garde exhibits and fine films focused on the arts. Located in a renovated firehouse on Burlington's pedestrian Church Street Marketplace.
