Have been several times but last couple have been disappointing because most of the gallery was closed off for renovations. Check the website or call before you go. Hopefully it will be fully operational for my next visit. Was really impressed by the variety of exhibits when they are.

Small university art museum with interesting rotating exhibits, and a great staff. Free entry, well worth a visit if you're in the Cville vicinity.

The museum is very well-run and organized. The placards by each art piece are detailed and helpful. Overall it's a lovely museum, just not very big, so there's not a whole lot to see. The rotating exhibits are cool, though!
