Been there multiple times-for specific shows. Art for the most part in my opinion is overated. Some good some absolute garbage. Seem to love knitted work (yawn). They might try to fine some people with a broader palette to judge what goes up here.

We make this a regular stop for first Friday. There is always something interesting on display plus free refreshments and music! This is truly an "art center" for the community, offering a variety of activities and a full slate of shows each year.

The Schweinfurth is a small museum that has very unique exhibits. They seem to have made textiles a focus and the current exhibit was of textiles. Each year they have quilt shows and a wonderful school exhibit. Worth a stop.

Small museum with a high admission price, but always interesting. Exhibits are on one level. They are usually innovative art &/or sculpture - with a theme. Creative artists use a variety of materials which non-creative folks, like me, find totally fascinating. If you like unusual...More

Response from Schweinfurth | Property representative |
Yes, the Schweinfurth is handicapped accessible. There is handicapped parking in front of the art center, and there is an elevator to get to the second-floor gallery.
