A very nice place to view art about and by the southern artist. There are many types of art, styles of art and artists. Art is grouped in small areas with a common title for the grouping. Extremely low price to get in as well.

Most of the art is conventional. I recognized some artists from my time in Knoxville. The art was contemporary. It is not a large museum but just a nice place to visit.

I really enjoyed the collection. I was a bit surprised that the museum was only one floor as it is in a large multi-story building. The organization/flow of the museum made touring it very enjoyable. If you're stressed, visit while the Stephen Estrada exhibit is...More

Regina is correct. I went to the Museum on a Sunday, and so it was free. I don't know what the regular rate is.
