Nice, small museum. Great temporary exhibits, nice space, solid gift shop. Surprised by the lack of art by Morris Graves himself.

Not much here. Photo exhibit in one room and local art in the other. Nice building. Old books in the gift sho were worth a brief look.

This former Carnegie Library has been lovingly restored and transformed into a very fine museum. Several different galleries. Visit during First Saturday Arts Alive and admission is free. The night I attended (and had work on display--full disclosure) there was a steady, decent crowd and...More
