    Housed on the Stanford University campus in a $36 million building designed by Richard Olcott, this collection, built over the past half-century by a Bay Area couple, enjoys 15,000 square feet of exhibition space, where 104 paintings, sculptures and other works are currently displayed. (The entire collection numbers 121 pieces.) Olcott's building, which is impressive in its own right, floats next to Stanford's Cantor Arts Center, and admission to both is free.
