New building to show mostly modern Southern art. Few great pieces. contemporary exhibits are interesting. You end up comparing very known artists with the regional ones

Definitively advise to visit the Ogden Museum: from classic to more modern periods, it will give you a good feel of the Southern Modern Arts. They have a permanent collection and temporary exhibitions. Thanks to this variety of arts and style, it's a continuous discovery...More

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

We were very disappointed with our visit here, as they had just closed down several floors of exhibits and were setting up for a new show. Out of four floors of exhibit space only one floor was open. We did enjoy the art we got...More

warehouses for which the area is so well known. Much
of the art you'll come across here is local in scope,
ownership and inspiration. However, among the many old
