I visited the museum mainly to see the Wyeth collection. But the first exhibit you see (through the end of December) is a real sleeper - a large number of fantastic works by Stephen Scott Young. If you are planning a trip soon, go and catch this great exhibit before it ends. You can easily find examples of his work online if you are unfamiliar with him. I am certainly glad to have discovered him at the Greenville museum.
The other great part of my visit was the Wyeth collection. I have been interested in his work for many years but was overwhelmed by my 2 visits to the Atlanta High Museum exhibit a few years back. Since then I visited the Brandywine River Museum, the Farnsworth Museum, and Christina's house. The Greenville museum completed my tour of major Wyeth museums and was very nice. While Wyeth's famous egg tempera paintings are represented well at other museums, Greenville has a nice representation of Wyeth's watercolors. After viewing, a few of these were added to my mental collection of Wyeth's best works
Compared to the other museums, the collection is much smaller and may not be worth a 5 hour round trip from as far as Atlanta. But if you are already in the area and are a Wyeth fan, plan a visit for an hour or two. It will be a pleasant experience.
