The Trout is an interesting place. They have different exhibits, that change either by season, holiday or time of year. They also will feature local students artwork from the many different schools in the area.

My husband and I stopped in just to see what it was about. We were warmly greeted by a staff member who let us know what we could expect. We saw a wonderful display of different art forms. All beautiful in their own way.

You average museum of art. exhibit changes about once every two months. They always have unique exhibits, but I honestly expected more.

intriguing variety of local and traveling exhibits including a wide range of artistic content and styles. I love that they do so much to support the arts in the local region. Give it a look when you are in town!

We happened to visit on opening day of the current exhibit, which is a collection of photos of Pablo Picasso! Staff was very friendly and told us a lot of interesting information before setting us free to see the collection.
