  • My kids LOVED visiting this old store chocked full of art installations and old items dating several decades back. The kids explored, played and enjoyed the "scavenger hunt" that Elsewhere provided. I...  more »
  • I could tell it was going to be bizarre. There was lots of stuff to look at but I wouldn't call most of it art.

  • The concept is unique The staff is both friendly & inspiring The art is thought provoking My daughter and I did not want to leave
  • Kinda weird somewhat interesting only a dollar to get in.
  • The wierdest place in town. Greensboro wouldn't be Greensboro with out them.
  • Enchanting! Still to this day I am in awe of George and Steph's ability to imagine Elsewhere coming from "The Space". Here a once cluttered collection of antiques have become the multi-media of incredibly talented minds. Even if you have never in your life enjoyed an art exhibit you will be entranced. Every turn will take you on a nostalgic and thought provoking journey. This is a living, breathing and always growing installation. Truly a must see!
  • From the outside looking in I could see swings hanging in the front window space of Elsewhere and was intrigued. I had no idea I was going to fall head over heels for this collaborative, collective “play space” for artists and the community. Do you remember the feeling you had the first time you walked into a toy store? All the shelves filled, from floor to ceiling, with boxes of dolls, games and play things you couldn't wait to get your hands on? Exactly how I felt walking into Elsewhere. I must have walked around the first floor with my mouth agape, in blissful wonderment for thirty minutes. It’s challenging to describe in words all that you see in Elsewhere. Some collection or installation occupies nearly every square inch of wall space and many of them are interactive. Yet, it doesn’t feel cluttered. There is organization and structure underneath that chaotic surface. You need to go experience it yourself when they reopen in Spring 2014.
