  • They have many Known Artists.Something for every one. From Early painters to POP art and many in between.  more »
  • The Swope gallery was doing a bit of renovation but still worth the time to visit. The range of artists was surprisingly broad and combined notable local artists as well as some excellent world class ...  more »
  • Was in town with time to kill; they've got some great pieces. I can imagine if you're into art this must be even better. Good for the price too (free!)  more »

  • Came here with a group of people for a tour, and had a great time. Really enjoyed the different styles of art, our guide was very friendly and informative and I learned a lot about the pieces she highlighted. This is a wonderful place to spend some time, whether with a group or on your own. Highly recommended.
  • I went specifically to see my 11 year old niece's piece that is in the Lost Creek's school display. I was privileged to be able to see all of the school's artwork. Elementary school thru highschool. 51st such showing at Swope. So wonderful. I was amazed. Having said that, I arrived early and was blessed to have time to check out the Swope's own pieces. Oh my goodness! I have missed out for way too long. The pictures were jumping out at me. So many seemed to be 3 dimensional. I was moved by many of them. And the frames? Incredible. I had the good fortune to speak with one of the employees (I know that this isn't the deserving title but the correct one doesn't come to mind). He shared great insight and made my visit that much more special. I only have one regret. They accept donations and I had left my purse in the car. I didn't have cash anyway. I hardly ever do. But I will make sure that I do in the future. Yes. I plan on making it a regular thing for me. I am excited to take my 6 year old granddaughter.
  • It’s a really fun free place to visit. The staff were very nice. The art was of various styles and time periods.
  • A nice little museum with a good selection of early 20th century American art and some 19th century Indiana impressionists. Make a day trip of it and see the Haan Museum in Lafayette as well.
  • Wonderful place, very friendly and knowledgeable staff. A lot of pieces from local artists. Not the biggest place but still very much worth checking out. Admission is free.
