    Located in Columbia College, this small museum show a wide range of work that's challenging, fun, and works the edges of how you define photography. They also offer events and lectures. It's free and open to the public.

    Free. I just saw a magnificent exhibit. Regrettably, I missed the artist forum. Tempting calendar of events.
