“Nice art”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014

This was a seasonal art show with 73 watercolor painitings.
We really enjoyed stopping here. It was free and I think it is almost always that way.

“Local Art Museum”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2014

This place was formerly the local Carnegie library and is now an art center, museum, classroom, etc. They usually have exhibits of local artists that change every couple of months. A recent one figured a series of oils by a local artist of 51 prominent area resident's hands. Many were shown holding something used in their profession or hobby. This may not sound exciting but it was very well done.

At other times there will art or music classes or shows. It is worth spending am hour or so to see what the current showing is. In February or March they will have a Mardi Gras show and party.

Admission is usually free for the shows but a donation is requested.

“One of Decatur's treasures”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2014

So impressed with the exhibitions I've seen at the Carnegie, great for a city the size of Decatur.
The staff was very helpful and friendly and the space is very well maintained.
