This museum has about 4 levels of high quality exhibits and is walking distance from the main commercial area. I enjoyed the Wyeth exhibit as well as the Masterworks of Color: African-American Artfrom the Greenville Collection, and In a Mirror, Darkly exhibit. You can easily navigate the museum casually in about 2 hours. I like that you can take photos... More

It always amazes me that we have such a wonderful Wyeth exhibit here is Greenville. And, it says a lot that the Wyeth family visits the museum. We were lucky enough to have a gallery tour/talk with Andrew Wyeth's grand daughter a few years ago. The new Wyeth Dynasty exhibit is amazing. I knew, of course, about NC and Jamie... More

Wyeth Dynasty exhibit is fantastic. Andrew Wyeth has a personal letter on the wall saying Greenville has the largest collection of his art in the USA. Digital non flash pictures are allowed. Visitors are asked to stay 3 feet away from art.

Previously having vented a bit on some of the museums deficiencies, I returned last week and had an utterly delightful time exploring the outstanding, masterfully curated exhibits running concurrently. The Grainger McCoy sculptures, Wyeth legacy show, African American art spanning recent centuries and the stunning work of Susan Vecsey, all combined have created a "perfect storm" for an A+ moment...

Greenville is a wonderful town, they have done an amazing job revitalizing downtown and we enjoy visiting as often as possible. On this trip we discovered the art museum. Wow! Who would have thought this little city had a museum of this caliber. They are building a permanent collection of Andrew Wyeth including his father, son, and two sisters. It's... More

Just saw an awesome Andrew Wyeth Legacy exhibit and viewed the amazing wooden bird sculptures of Geofrey (sp?) McKoy. Nice open space. Building is part of a wonderful complex with children's museum, small theatre, natural science museum, etc. Worth a visit. And its free. Parking sometimes has a fee.

I visit this museum annually, as I love the permanent collection and the stellar Wyeth treasury here. This museum could do such a better job in educating/informing visitors about the works. Curatorial efforts here appear mediocre. The signage corresponding to the art is minimal, explaining little about the artists, period and details (unless this has been updated in the last... More
