This is a community center with art wired on the walls. Having said that, I caught a juried show of RI artists and thought that the quality of artwork was good. It's just the presentation and the building itself which leave something to be desired. I wouldn't go out of my way to go here. I do believe that they... More

The art changes every month or so. Go on a Friday night when they have two improv comedy shows. The earlier show is "family friendly" (i.e. no swearing or "adult" humor). They ask for audience participation, so bring your funny friends!

After all the money put in to clean this place up the place is the same it was 20years ago. Same people doing the same safe boring stuff. The Luis no excitement ever there just a bunch of old ladies showing their old art

It was a small place with lots of art work with a lot of paintings from local artists. Very cool and surreal to see and much of the artwork was done in a style that I prefer. This place is one in which you can buy the art work, so it is very nice. A little small, but beautiful nonetheless.

a small but very nice museum that brings not only art but learning to the area. this is a place that should be supported by everyone in the area. It brings so much to the people in the local area who would like to see art knowledge grow and the children will get to see things they would not get... More

I would not call it terrible, but this is literally as others have mentioned 1 big room of art. I went over the weekend and there was a show of local artists from the Southern New England region but all artwork was available for sale. This should be called an ART GALLERY/Studio not an Art Museum.

I have been by the Museum and it never appealed. We went planning to show our face and leave. The room was lovely, the pictures very interesting (in a good way) and the food and wine provided was good. I'd go again.

I walked in, expecting an "art museum" as the name states. And it was just one small room of terrible paintings. There is a small stage and a bunch of seats. The woman working there told me people come there for the "exhibits" and I was confused and asked when this was, and she told me "right now!". She wasn't... More

When they have shows etc. they are really nice.A real nice place for family. Small but well taken care of. If you have a short time and you want to do something this is just the ticket. Warwick should be very proud to have them near city hall.next to the library.
