You know if a community values art if the community makes art available to everyone. The Greenville County Museum of Art is free. Free, free, free. It is free! And amazing.

Thanks so much for your review! We have lots of great exhibitions planned for later this spring and summer, so I hope you are able to visit again. Also, don't miss our Fine Art + Flora weekend, April 21-22. Also free!

I very much enjoyed this museum. I was extremely moved by the Dave the Potter exhibit. The place was small and I could have spent more time if there were more to see; however, what was there was a wonderful experience.

Thank you so much for your review. The David Drake exhibition is indeed thought provoking and moving. Unfortunately, two of our galleries were closed during your visit, so I hope you will return again soon to see new exhibitions this spring.
