Don't go expecting to see any Old Masters, but the Center features a very nice collection of regional art. My favorite was the room with the all-around painted diorama illustrating the history of the U.S.

We were very surprised by the variety of exhibits, the number of exhibits and found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend visiting the panorama room that depicts the history of the west - extremely well done!

Enjoyed this art museum of Rapid City! Several changing galleries show different forms of art from Native work to Expresssionism. The art center offers classes to long term guests or residents. It adds to the art life in Rapid City.
