We visited with some reservations assuming the collection might reflect local conservative limits. To our very pleasant surprise, GCMA has an excellent, albeit small, contemporary collection that has not been shackled by any artistic censorship. Well worth the visit.

They had a few very impressive items, some good ones, and the rest are unremarkable or bad. They had a nice showcase of southern artists and cartoon art.

We spent about 1 1/2 hours wandering the galleries at this modest but very nice museum of art. There is a wide range of types of art and various periods, styles and techniques on display. The galleries are well annotated and interesting. The staff are very friendly there, and were helpful. There are essentially only two floors and 6 galleries,... More

Pretty neat collection that spans several different genres of art. There is figurative art, but also a wing with some abstract expressionism. If your an Andrew Wyeth fan,m you're in for a treat. This museum has a good, solid collection of Wyeth watercolors that are part of the permanent collection.

You can walk between the art museum and the history museum. Parking is free. On the day I visited I did not have to fight for a parking spot, which makes all the difference for me between having a good time and having a stressful event. The art museum is small, but interesting. I enjoyed the Andrew Wyeth display and... More

This morning, March 19, 2015, I pulled my phone out to check the time. One of the museum employees made a straight beeline towards me and asked me not to take photos in a very confrontational manner. I said "Oh, I didn't. Just checking the time." She sneered at me and sarcastically said "Oh, Yeah, right." As if I was... More

We visited the Greenville County Museum of Art during a recent daytrip to Greenville. Though completely unknown to me previously, it was a stop well worth making. Part of an arts and cultural complex of newer and restored buildings, it houses a fine collection of works by regional artists. There is a particularly strong collection of painting and sculpture by... More

I had a nice visit to the museum and had really enjoyed the interesting floral arrangements that were located in the landings of the stairs between floors. I had my cell phone out and was photographing them as I went thru the museum. I also must admit I did take a photo of a Wyeth watercolor. There was no posted... More

The museum is known for it's Andrew Wyeth collection, and we were not disappointed there. In addition to a large gallery full of Wyeth's, there were several others with diverse and interesting works on display. We loved the space itself and look forward to future visits.
