Some nice work by Andrew Wyeth and some impressionists. Some "new" art which we are not big fans of. There is no admission charge.

This is a small art museum. The exhibits were nice though nothing I thought was incredible. There is a fair amount of impressionistic paintings, some nice water colors, and an exhibit of South Carolina related pieces which were created all over the state. It took a little less than two hours to visit and I really appreciate that it was... More

Had an interesting experience there. We had elementary and middle school-aged children at that visit - kids that love art and building artists, but I felt that we were constantly being watched and given the suspicious eye when we were just trying to enjoy the art. Not many friendly faces on staff. Interestingly, growing up in Greenville, I remember a... More

A great mix of 20th Century art marrying Andrew Wyeth, Jasper Johns, and South Carolina artists. Housed in a fine venue adjacent to the main library, children's museum, and theater, the site allows the patron to explore several attractions all family friendly.

A wonderful, (and, free) museum - always on our "to do" list! A different exhibit yearly - but always a Wyeth presentation.

There are four reasons to come here. First is the works of Jasper Johns (a Greenville resident); second is the Andrew Wyeth collection (called, by his widow, the best in a public museum, even though there are no major works here) and the third is the truly spectacular collection of works with a Southern connection (although that has become "politically...

This was my first visit to the GCMA and I was anxious to see the Jamie Wyeth show. They called it : Jamie Wyeth, Our Own Rabelais. I was an art minor in college and Rabelais did not ring a bell with me so I was curious to see why the museum titled the show that way. Well, the question... More

Stopped in to see Jamie Wyeth exhibit. Saw that and a whole lot more. Some really wonderful stuff. I knew from previous reviews that they did not allow photography in the galleries. This is also posted throughout the museum-- so I left my camera in the car. But don't count on being able to buy anything much in the shop... More
