A very attractive small university museum- some pieces from permanent collection out and then usually a traveling show. From time to time they show American self taught art- so strong in the south. I remember a memorable Howard Finster show here several,years back. Worth a...More

Outdoor sculptures, Chihuly chandelier, social exhibits, concerts and receptions all make this small art museum special. Because it is free, you can make frequent visits and say as long (or short) as your attention span allows. It has a bike rack and is on a...More

This is a fun little museum. There's no entrance fee. They have a fun summer art program for kids. There's also a cafe.

The JCSM is a great spot to stop, relax, visit with friends and enjoy the art exhibits. The exhibit will typically take about 30 minutes to tour. We have especially enjoyed several evenings at the museum during the summer when they have a Thursday evening...More
