I was in Roanoke on business when I had a break between conferences. I saw an advertisement for the Eleanor D. Wilson Museum. I love visiting museums and I was unfamiliar with this one.

As university museums go- very nice. The facility is well maintained; the lighting on the works displayed is done correctly.

We stopped by after visiting the Taubman Museum of Art in Roanoke earlier in the day. The current exhibit "Echo Sounding" showing works by three artists ( Liz Miller, Younseal Eum, and Hugette Despault May) is outstanding! We found the work of all three artists thoroughly engrossing. We will definitely visit this museum on our next visit to Roanoke.

Andy Warhall exhibit was good. Also the Good Night Moon exhibit was good too. Glad to see some of the way Good Night Moon was intertwined with Run A Way Bunny.

Nice small musum located on campus of Hollins University. Art is its focus and it always has very high quality exhibits of national and regionally known artists. If you go take tie to stroll the school's grounds as there are surprise sculptures scattered about.
