Great museum of Southern art and artists. Small enough to get it all in without spending a whole day but comprehensive with rotating exhibits

Definitely worth a stop. They have live jazz on Thursday evenings, and you get to wander the museum too. Fans of Benny Andrews must visit.

Some very different and unique artwork here. I enjoyed spending a day here when the weather wasn't great. Some of the exhibits were like nothing I have seen elsewhere. Worth doing.

ownership and inspiration. However, among the many old
brick warehouses are modern structures of steel and
