This is a nice little art center. The building design is totally modern art/architecture. It has a light and airy design. Its actually fun to walk through. They show diverse pieces but I wish that they would show case local artists more often. They do get interesting pieces like Pollack now and then.

I really enjoyed this art center. I felt that it was pretty indicative of art from this area as well as those from around the world. One particular art piece really captivated me. Sojourner: Solar reef by Andrew Langoussis.

I've been to art museums all over the state. Some free, some not--this is definitely one of the more well done, free admission art centers/museums in the state.

When ever my grandchildren come to visit me for a weekend they ask me to take them to the Sioux City, Art Center. They like to walk through the galleries to see all the artwork on display. They like the kids room where they can play with lego's, blocks, computers, and draw pictures. No cover charges to get in.

The Sioux City Art Center has interesting artwork and a hands-on children's area. My students enjoyed the creative and manipulative features such as the Legos building blocks. Admission is a free will donation. Free parking is available too.

The Art Center is interesting too look at. They always have impressive gallery's. Small children love the children's area. If you can, take the stairs. They are a beautiful spiral.

The Sioux City Art Center is one of the highlights of a trip to the city - the exhibits are outstanding, and the building itself is a work of art. One of the exhibits we saw while there was a Lego exhibit, and it was amazing. Another was artworks created by local youth in various mediums, and they were so... More
