I didn't know much about Terry Redlin before taking a day trip down to Watertown for my birthday, but I'm so glad we stopped by. This center has nearly all original artworks painted by hometown artist Terry Redlin. I love how he captures the essence of small town America and the beautiful landscapes. They have three levels of art galleries and two gift shops as well as a visitor center for other South Dakota info. We spent just over an hour here and really enjoyed walking around the grounds outdoors as well. Located right off the interstate, it's worth a stop in!

we took our kids there and walked around and did a scavenger hunt and it was really fun we thoroughly enjoyed it and they got a nice little prize of a neat little art set at the end of it. if you have some respect for art and want to teach it to your children and want to check out a great South Dakota personality oh, this is the place for you and your family.

The Redlin Art Center is in a great location. Love going there for picnics and watching the bird, ducks, and geese. But also enjoy the art. Check it out!

You have seen his paintings, even if you don't know who he is. If you are within 100 miles of Watertown, it is worth the stop. You can see this building from the interstate and it is quick and easy to get too...stop and spend an hour to walk thru his wildlife paintings. You will not be disappointed.

Visiting the Redlin Art Center in Watertown, South Dakota, is like climbing the Eiffel Tower in...well, Watertown, South Dakota. It only proves that you can find priceless art treasures in the strangest places. The Redlin Art Center is an art gallery where over 150 of artist Terry Redlin's original paintings are displayed. The 52,000-square-foot brick building, designed by Terry Redlin's son, Charles Redlin, was opened on June 6, 1997 and has welcomed over two million visitors. The building, with 38-foot RockvilleWhite granite columns, is as elegant and as picturesque and as majestic as the works of art that are displayed inside. Polished granite was used throughout the Redlin Center with Rockville White granite tile covering 9,000 square feet of the main floor, Black Galaxy granite imported from India covering 10,000 square feet of the grand entrance and gallery and Impala granite wainscoting imported from Africa covering 5,900, square feet of walls. Then there are the paintings. Each painting marks a specific time in Terry Redlin's life. Today, 150 originals representing each year of Redlin's career are on permanent display. Redlin sold most of his paintings before 1984 but the current collection has select originals from 1967 to 1984 and every original after 1985. Admission is free.
