“Sub-par Art Museum”
Reviewed 18 April 2013

This is a decent Art Museum. Most of the exhibits seem like stuff out of someone's garage they deemed art. There were also quite a few exhibits that were inappropriate for young children - nudity and violent. Of course, I understand the art of such things, but it was just weird.

“Humbling Exhibition: "Zone of Contention"”
Reviewed 6 April 2013

A friend and I went to the exhibition called "Zone of Contention" and spent a couple hours looking at everything. It was laid out very well. The museum was quiet, so we were able to contemplate the works. Afterward, we stopped by the gift shop. The cashier was friendly and helpful. I 'm looking forward to going again.

“Always A Treat”
Reviewed 15 March 2013

The Weatherspoon is an often missed jewel in Greensboro. The ever changing shows are always interesting and sometimes edgy. Although they are open during regular business hours, I like going on a Thursday night, the only time they are open in the evening. Since the shows change regularly, there is always something new to see and I always feel comfortable, welcomed by the staff, and right at home there.

“a hidden treasure in our midst”
Reviewed 3 March 2013

tremendous exhibits -- helpful staff but they leave you alone and you don't feel pressured to donate, although it's a pleasure to do so as each time I visit I'm enriched!
