There are 4 shows right now. The contemporary furniture by german-born Vicco von Voss is artful and sensuous. The american landscape painters from Bierstadt to Wyeth is very interesting- from a private collection so there are unknown paintings by this group of fine artists. The Rosa Parks exhibit includes the original illustrations used for the Caldecott Medal winning children's book,... More

The Academy is small, but the four exhibits, ranging from contemporary wood sculpture/furniture, to illustrations from the children's book Rosa Parks, to the collection of landscapes, was first rate.

There were two special exhibits and the price is right at only 3 dollars a person. It also had local art for sale upstairs, but we didn't have time.

Our innkeepers suggested we go. We did the walking tour of Easton and stopped here along the way. For $3 per person we were delighted by the installation by Ahn. Amazing visual stimulation. Love it!

The Academy of the Arts is wonderful place to spend some time. The exhibits are interesting, admission nominal. The docents are most helpful. Highly recommend.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Academy of Arts during a recent Eastern Shore getaway. The exhibits were interesting, ranging from local archaeological heritage to 20th century collections. I was also extremely impressed that the "Academy" in the name is very real - the establishment offers ongoing classes in art, sculpture and dance, aiding the cultivation of the arts for which Easton...

What a delight. This museum was recommended to us by the innkeeper at Easton's Promise. The docent was extremely helpful and the cost was refreshingly low. The value was excellent. It has 2 visiting exhibits. The upper floor was art work from local artists. The display of the Wye homestead archeological dig was particularly interesting. The art projects were unusual... More

This was a fabulous exhibit, usually seen only in New York. It is all done with lights and mirrors. The pictures are three dimensional and appear from different perspectives as you move your viewing position. It is hard to describe and fascinating. The Academy of Art is well run and always interesting, well worth a visit when in Easton.
