This is an interesting place to visit and tour, but mostly if modern / contemporary art is your thing. so my average rating is admittedly biased. Some of the artwork was quite good and provocative, other pieces only so-so or amateurish. Still, a decent place...More

I don't know why people even visit here. Does host parties. Not much to it. Is located back in a housing neighborhood so at least it is safe to visit.

SECCA is wonderful if they happen to be showing something good. However, frequently they are between shows/exhibits. The old Hanes house is gorgeous as are the grounds but for someone who is expecting an exhibition of art it is critical to find out ahead of...More
