Taubman unveiled: More than 10,000 visitors mused over modern and basked in baroque at Roanoke's newest star, the Taubman Museum, on Saturday.

The Taubman Museum of Art opened to the public Saturday with a day of music, ballet, inspiring words by Gov. Tim Kaine and other dignitaries and at least 10,000 visitors.

A day Roanoke had anticipated for months, if not years, came off with few major problems, while the $66 million building by Los Angeles architect Randall Stout garnered mostly rave reviews.
