I loved this cool Art center! Definitely a must, if you're in town. The permanent collection might not be too spectacular, but at the tie we visited they had "Mural" and that is pretty spectacular! And the admission is free! There's also a great kid's room, where they can hang out and play educational games, while the adults are enjoying... More

Wonderful building and artwork! We stopped in to see the Jackson Pollack painting and I really loved the building, I'm a bit of an architecture buff.

This is a great building with fabulous artwork! Right now & for the next couple of months is a by the great Jackson Pollack. On loan from the U. of Iowa along with it's $150,000,000.00 value!. This Art Center gets some wonderful pieces to display along with it's own collection. Worth the trip & visit!

We spent part of our Valentines day at the Art Center and I must say that although smaller in scale to what a bigger might offer what was on display would rival the bigger city's. We were there to see the Jackson Pollock painting "Mural" yet once we moved on to the pieces on permanent display we were in awe... More

Wow - who would have ever thought you could see a Jackson Pollock mural/painting in Sioux City? I'm from Chicago and was visiting Sioux City. To see a display like this made me think I back in Chicago. Congratulations to the "art scene" of Sioux City for landing this artistic genius!

The Sioux City Art Center is worth a stop and a linger. The architecture of the building is unique and I am certain you will find the displays, both traveling and permanent, enjoyable. I live in town and am able to stop often. The grounds and inside are always kept super clean and no matter when I have been there,... More

We were lucky enough to visit while the museum had Jackson Pollock's "Mural" on display. While that piece was impressive and the supporting information (history, etc.) was well done there was lots of good art throughout the museum. The staff was very attentive and friendly. A gem of Sioux City.

If you're expecting a big city art muesum, you might be disappointed at the Sioux City Art Center. But if you like local and regional artists you'll be thrilled, and if you have kids, you'll love the kids room. My sons have spent hours in there-in one visit! The traveling exhibits are often worth checking out (I think it's Jackson... More

We came specifically to see the conservation work done on the Pollack mural and we were pleasantly surprised by the attractive museum building. Don't miss the permanent collection on the third floor. It was started with a grant from the WPA. Mostly midwestern artists who are not well known, but the works are well selected excellent representation of various styles... More
