A real must for anyone into contemporary art and film. It is also a world renowned building by Peter Eisenman that is worth photographing as an outstanding example of Deconstructivism. I visited twice- once at night for a film and then the next day for...More

There are always a variety of exhibits or shows here. They cover a wide variety of mediums and change regularly. There is much to absorb on each visit so almost everyone can find something thought provoking with each exhibition.

The Wexler was top on my list of places to visit while in Columbus, combining contemporary art and architecture. Lucky for us, the Sunday my boyfriend and I visited was Free-Admission Sunday. The galleries are wonderfully lit with a lot of natural light from Peter...More

We recently went to see the exhibit Junk Dada here. It is a fascinating exhibit of African-American "found" art, in the style of Marcel Duchamp. The exhibit was well-lit and the accompanying video explanatory. We love the Wexner and have been going there for years....More

OSU has some wonderful buildings on a well thought out campus but the Waxner Art Building is not one of them. Architectural conceit, foolosh grids flying about and a maintenance nightmare. Too bad the architect was so self centered. He would have done vastly better...More
