Art lovers – this is not to be missed. A wonderful experience!
I come here every time I visit the area. This museum is a mini-treasure. They have new exhibits all the time… It must be seen to be appreciated. Who would have guessed? World-class art in a 'beach community.'

The Art Museum is dedicated to being one of the finest visual arts museums in the Carolinas. In our 11 galleries, exhibitions change throughout the year as the Museum features a lively panorama of artists and their works including paintings, textiles, sculpture, photography, video, ceramics, assemblage, collage — almost anything the artistic imagination can construct.
We have featured artists of national renown, such as Ansel Adams, Frank Lloyd Wright, Norman Rockwell, John James Audubon, the Gee's Bend quilters and Jasper Johns, as well as some of the region's most celebrated names, including Jonathan Green and Brian Rutenberg.
We take pride in offering exhibitions that provide enjoyment and learning for all ages — and especially for families, such as those highlighting Goodnight Moon, Babar, Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn and the golden age of animated films.
A visit to the Art Museum's exhibitions can be enhanced by our lively opening receptions, our docent tours and our engaging lectures.
