The stainless-steel facade looks more like an industrial warehouse than a museum, and the entrance isn't readily apparent. Welcome to the Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston, where everything seems left of center. A walk through this bright, angular gallery of contemporary art can be either jarring or elucidating, depending on the patron's attitude. Either way, visitors walk away having experienced something they hadn't before. Don't skip the downstairs gift shop and its wide array of sleek, modern gifts.
