The front, out by the road has a huge, red hawk red piece of abstract artwork which immediately catches your eye. When you walk in the pond with the green abstract artwork is very soothing and creates a feeling of welcome. The white building seems as if it would be very small when you walk in, but the atmosphere created is something you wouldn’t expect from an art museum. It is almost as if it is a warm, homey feeling from the minute you walk in. The workers greet you and instruct you on how the building is set up in order to make your trip easier.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
