“Great spot!”

Nice art museum. Worth taking a some time to check this place out. It is a former Library If I recall that has been converted to a fantastic venue for fine exhibitions.

“Not bad for a small town”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

I was pleased that it wasn't filled with western art, but not blown away. It is a nice little museum and you can tell they are trying very hard. It's in an awkward building but with doing at if you are already downtown with time to kill.

“Really a jewel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013

This was our third visit. this time not so much for the exhibit but for a lecture by a visiting artist. Having been there before we knew that the museum is well supported by the art community. Never did we dream that the lecture would attract over a hundred people. the presenter was personable, interesting, and his art work exquisite. the gallery itself has numerous levels and
both permanent and rotating exhibits. the building was a former Carnegie library but a wonderful modern addition blends well both functionally and aesthetically. Such a jewel for such a nice city.

“small but mighty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

The day I went they were in the process of changing displays so
there was only one showing. Coming from st.Louis it is hard for me to say much due to the size of the museum. Quite small......but if you are downtown for lunch this is a fun place to stop.
