I attended a reception and exhibit of the work of Elizabeth Catlett that was hosted through a partnership between the museum and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority. What a wonderful event, and I don't just say that because I am a member of the organization. Lise Swensson, the director of the museum, has such an engaging enthusiasm for the arts that... More

The Folk Art exhibit at this museum is awesome; along with the varying seasonal exhibits that change frequently. It's a beautiful building (restoration of an historic building) and the exhibits are really interesting.

The museum is very nice, if not just a little small. They do a good job of scheduling new shows on a regular visit, and the space itself is very well designed. Many of their exhibits are regional is nature, featuring NC artist.

Very good spaces in the converted old high school, shared with the Science Center, and right next door to the main library. Permanent exhibits, and both photography , paint and collage .Traveling exhibits come and go. A great place to visit and close to the downtown square.
