The Coos Art Museum is a gem for locals, and tourists alike. Steven Broocks the Executive Director brings in a wide variety of art shows to entice, enthrall, captivate those who cross the main entrance threshold. Multiple galleries offer something for everyone, the Permanent Collection is exceptional in it's collection of Southwest Coast Artists, the Rental/Sales Gallery is accommodating to the collector and your pocketbook.
